    So how did you generate the new .config? Did you start with a defconfig
    of some sort and then alter to personal taste?

    I ask because if we have other users our there that have working system
    with BLK_DEV_IDE=m it'd be nice to have make oldconfig fix them. If
    it's just a matter of not letting people get into that state then
    something like the patch below will probably help.

    Ensure that BLK_DEV_IDE is built-in befoer allowing BLK_DEV_IDE_PMAC to
    be selected.
