This is nice, since I was just going to ask why my config file (put at
http://www.ime.usp.br/~rbrito/debug/config-2.6.26-rc4-4) has

(...)
# CONFIG_PPC_CLOCK is not set
(...)

Even if I force it to yes. When I run a "make oldconfig", it sets back
the PPC_CLOCK to not set. :-(

If anybody can explain what is going on (and how to correct it), I would
kindly appreciate it (and even generate some documentation on the
options, if I understand the issue it well enough).


Regards, Rogério Brito.
