I don't know how to properly debug the kernel configuration process when an option that should be on ( because it doesn't really depends on anything and it doesn't conflict with anything that I can think of ) , really can't find a way to live beyond
make olddefconfig .
Among other things I'm using
4.8.6 kernel tree and I found no way to write a
.config file that will retain this specific flag on after using
make and according to the available documentation and scripts in the
arch/mips this shouldn't happen .
Since this option is required in order to generate
vmlinuz for mips targets I have enabled lzma for the kernel for both compression and decompression but so far ... nothing,
CONFIG_SYS_SUPPORTS_ZBOOT=y keeps on "going off" .
Do you have any idea how I can literally force a CONFIG flag to stay on or how to debug why
kbuild are thinking that this flag can't be on ?
