ip-masq-vpn patch missing from errata 2.2.19 kernel

All previous rh70 kernels included the ip-masq-vpn patch:
2.2.16-22 with a glitch
2.2.17-14 with the glitch solved
The latest errata 2.2.19 kernel lacks the patch.
Some weird things:
look at kernel-2.2.19-i686.config (or the others too), it contains
rpm -bp SPECS/kernel-2.2.spec
cp SOURCES/kernel-2.2.19-i686.config BUILD/linux/.config
make menuconfig -> then just exit and save
diff ../../SOURCES/kernel-2.2.19-i686.config .config
PPTP is taken out, and there are a lot of other differences, why?
Which is the correct config file used by the src.rpm? You intentionally use
oldconfig_nonint to do a brute force oldconfig for this reason?
Our config files often have options for which the patch is not always applied
(eg even if there is no ext3 patch in the 2.2.19 kernel, the ext3 option might

No. oldconfig_nonint is there to gather all "missing" options and print them out
in a list and then bail out. It's much more efficient for us to do that during
development than to wait an hour for every missing option (when upgrading a
Patch is added for the next build, for if/when we decide to make a
new erratum kernel available.
