i question the usefullness of aboves patch.

originaly we used oldconfig. the trouble was that notorious arches
would drag behind and not update their configs and thus the build
would break. now there is an upstream silentoldconfig.

reportoldconfig reports variables as not set that are selected
due to choices. DVB_STB0899 beeing selected due to
debian/config/config:CONFIG_DVB_AV7110=m
http://stats.buildserver.net/fetch.php?&pkg=linux-2.6&ver=2.6.29~rc8-1~experimental.1~snapshot.13144&arch=amd64&stamp=1 237255509&file=log&as=raw
the only interesting setting that wasn't set at this point was
OPTIMIZE_INLINING.

thus it is more interesting to have an oldconfig build run
on every arch one cares to have the really open variables set.

kconfigeditor2 seems to be able to nuke old variable settings
that are no longer around.

Please provide a replacement.

No, silentoldconfig is no replacement, the behaviour is different.

And? Please coordinate that.
