fixed by commit 22127f246dc37ed5bea0915f7860002ba6d87da7
Comment 2 Roman Zippel 2008-08-05 10:05:29 UTC
reopening because above commit causes a new regression, as .config is now even saved where it shouldn't. try: touch .config make

Or is there any problem I miss?

If you want to explicitely update the .config you can always call oldconfig, but other people keep their .config in a VCS, so if they restore a previous (valid) .config, a simple make would modify it (e.g. with a new timestamp). Writing the new .config only if neccessary is also a good sign that something was wrong with the old config and one can check what changed. This is now lost.
Comment 5 Rafael J. Wysocki 2008-08-05 12:04:25 UTC
Since the problem in question is different from the original one, can you open a separate bugzilla entry for tracking it and close this one, please?
