Ugh, what a mess. Take a look at http://www.codemonkey.org.uk/post-halloween-2.5.txt
You'll notice that your .config doesn't contain most of those in the
'gotchas' section that it suggests you make sure you have.
The root cause of this is that you have CONFIG_INPUT=m.
CONFIG_VT only shows up if you have CONFIG_INPUT=y.
With it set to =m a whole bunch of options never ever show up in the
This really wants fixing badly. The source of this problem seems to be
people taking 2.4 configs (where CONFIG_INPUT=m was fine), and it all
going pear-shaped when people make oldconfig. I'm aware of the problems
that oldconfig can't override variables set in .config, so how about
just renaming CONFIG_INPUT to something else ?
