I was not using a clean kernel.  I'll try that.

BTW, I know there's a way to keep the config from the "used kernel", so
that I don't have to guess the settings again for my system (I made
several config errors last time).  Can you remind me how to migrate the
.config file across to a new source tree?   I'll try & find some docs on
how to do this, but have forgotten where I last read about it.
