Make menuconfig

Hi All,
I have noticed that after setting "kernel profiling" via make menuconfig, I can see that the options is set in .config

$ grep PROFIL .config

however, when I start an openwrt build I see a message early on saying

# configuration written to .config

and when I check .config I see

$ grep PROFIL .config

So, my changes made via make menuconfig are lost when the .config is rebuilt.

Is there someplace else where I can set options so that they are retained for the build?

Thanks for your help,
John Alfredo

You can try in make kernel_menuconfig, but this sounds like a bug anyway, probably want to report it.

I tried the make kernel_menuconfig, and saw that the .config that was written was in


However, just as before, after I started a build CONFIG_PROFILING was unset in this location.

What is the procedure for reporting this?

AFAIK, reporting is limited to source which is being actively developed.
