Re: Problem booting 2.4.0-test series

I have seen strange problems sometimes with using menuconfig or xconfig
completely go away when creating my config as simply `make config`
Sometimes a strange dependency comes in.. Since your problem is a little

problem with the compilation procedures. Narrow that down first.
