A useful trick if you just want to change one kernel option is to edit
your .config to delete that particular line, then say `make oldconfig'.
It will run through and just ask you about the option you deleted.
(Don't just change the line to what you want, because make config does
several other things like setting up autoconf.h and include/config.)
