Hi all,

As you could see in my former mail, I have a very good source tree now.
But while trying things out, I spotted a bug while using 'make xconfig'

Please take a look at the following diff:

.config.old == config generated by 'make xconfig'
.config == config generated by 'make menuconfig'

The _selected_ configurations are exactly equal, but the results differ a lot!
The version from 'make menuconfig' is the correct one.
The little differences in comment in the file are removed, just the flaw is

@@ -1,5 +1,5 @@

+# Automatically generated by make menuconfig: don't edit

@@ -230,6 +198,8 @@

As you can see, the two defines to get the nfs.o module work are not there
in the version from 'make xconfig'

I hope this bug that cost me a few hours can be fixed soon !

Happy Hacking,

Best Regards,
