Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2004-01-13 08:33:27 EST
There is a reason we don't enable this config option: it is broken on
a LOT of machines and even when it's not, it only provides very very
marginal gain if any at all.

Self compiled kernels aren't supported; in addition we cannot make
every possible combination of kernel options work.
 You also forgot to do "make mrproper" as very first step, and
occasionally you need a make oldconfig after make menuconfig.
