what do you normally have to configure?  This could help in figuring out the 
issue.  Do you then build a custom kernel to avoid doing that every time?  
What do you do change there?

sure you can, if you got RC1 installed, can you show us the output of dmesg?
if you don't have it installed anymore, then try installing 4.7-release and 
then copy down the output of dmesg from there

well if RC1 installed, RC2 dosn't and you didn't change anything else, then 
maybe something broke.
