Firstly do you mind NOT posting the same question twice on the same list in 
quick succession?

In short a semi violation of POLA in favour of reducing traffic on questions@ 
(and other general support avenues). The idea was to stick things in here 
that if removed from your kernel conf things would almost DEFINITELY break 
the build.

so... the configure KERNEL_NAME does whatever you put in there in addition to 
what is in DEFAULTS. See the threads on stable@ for lots of discussions (and 
flames) on this.
