I suspect that you're mistaken in your diagnosis. The scriptlet you
quoted runs in the top of the build tree. A few lines earlier, this
happens:

cp -f %{all_arch_configs} .

The dot was removed, then untarred and patched, at the beginning of build.
Thus, the *.config is not globbed over a bunch of different configs left
over in the unclean .../SOURCES/. It cannot possibly run across different
revisions.

Right? Or I am missing something?

So, if your SKAS patch causes nohint_oldconfig to abort, it's something
other than pollution by old configs. You're still advised to remove
old sources before running rpm -i on an SRPM.
