And much of it is in a bad make oldconfig that I can't date, but all of the
multimedia stuff has been stripped and I can no longer use my pcHDTV3000
card as just one for instance. I just tested it, using an oldconfig that
contained several hundred bits and pieces under the ATSC & DVB headers,
after the oldconfig was done, all that was stripped from the new one, every
trace of it. That was working code guys, what the hell? Kconfig could
have problems, but the oldconfig output being stripped is a much larger
one. First problems first. Then you can really see how fubared kconfig
is.
