Nope. But in the hope that it tells you something worthwhile, I just
finished the same CVS build. My only problem came when the make
oldconfig didn't use the CPU, ramdisk and initrd settings from the
config I copied in. Had to scratch my head, do a diff, swear a little at
it, make adjustments and all was ok.
