Description of problem:
When a choice has a NEW item, nonint_oldconfig acts interactive,
asking the user for what option should be used. This causes builds to
stall, for no apparent reason.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. perl -p -i -e 's/.*CONFIG_X86_ELAN.*//' .config
2. make nonint_oldconfig

Updated nonint_oldconfig patch
This patch updates the fourth hunk to conf.c, making it use the default value
even if there are new items.
added for the next build; thanks.
Was this supposed to be fixed in FC3? Because it hasn't been. I
issued these commands:
cp /boot/config-2.6.9-1.667smp .config
And then it prompted me for this option:
Use 4Kb for kernel stacks instead of 8Kb (4KSTACKS) [N/y/?] (NEW)
Re comment #3:
This bug is for the nonint_oldconfig target, which isn't supposed to
be interactive, while the oldconfig target is supposed to be
interactive and the behaviour you described is hence valid.
The bug is indeed fixed in FC3.
