i'm looking at 2.4.20 with the 2.4.21-pre2 patch as we speak,
and, under "make xconfig", after deselecting IPv6, i am still
presented with a (deactivated) IPv6 netfilter configuration
granted, it's deactivated (is that what you were referring to?)
but it's still presented to me. this seems to be inconsistent
with one of your recent patches -- don't show arcnet dialog if
arcnet is deselected.
am i understanding all this correctly?

i'm downloading it as we speak. :-) but on a more general note,
here's something i was thinking about -- some of the more general
selections should have their overall select button moved up in
case in point: under "General setup", there are two (what do
you call those things?) selectable entries for "PCMCIA/CardBus
support" and "PCI Hotplug Support". why not make them selectable
entries, so i can deselect *all* of PCMCIA/Cardbus support
immediately right there?
as it is, i have to move on to the actual dialog, in which i
can deselect all of it in one click. there are other examples:
"Networking options" -> "Appletalk protocol support". right now,
even though it's deselected, the net line reads "Appletalk devices"
and that dialog *will* come up, albeit deactivated.
anyway, i'll switch over to 2.5.53 and let you know what i find.
