I wasn't suggesting that you use the config generated by 'yes "" |
...' only that you use it to list the new config options.

Looking at "make help", there's (now?) a "make listnewconfig" option
to do just that.

Regarding interrupting "make oldconfig", I don't see any option at the
moment except run "make menuconfig", set some options, save the
config, exit, and return to make menuconfig" later.
