>Description:
I'm building a custom kernel based on the GENERIC kernel configuration. Because I'm using a VPS I don't need many of the options & devices so these get disabled. While building the kernel I get the following error:

config: /usr/src/sys/amd64/conf/SECKERNEL:16: syntax error
*** [buildkernel] Error code 1

Line 16:

nooptions       UFS_ACL, UFS_DIRHASH, UFS_GJOURNAL

If I change line 16 to its own block like so it'll work:

nooptions       UFS_ACL
nooptions       UFS_DIRHASH
nooptions       UFS_GJOURNAL

However, this goes directly against the definition in the config(5) manualpage:

     nooption name [, name [...]]
     nooptions name [, name [...]]

The reason I suspect a bug is because the 'nodevice' directive does behave as expected.

>How-To-Repeat:
Use the following kernel configuration file and try using "make buildkernel":

## Start of config
include GENERIC
ident TESTKERNEL

nooptions UFS_ACL, UFS_DIRHASH, UFS_GJOURNAL
## End of config
