Right, I did look at it, and it should work OK.

Well, I do not know what your plans are for the other kconfig packages,
so I came up with the hook solution, because it is fool-proof against
any future kconfig package messing arounf with oldconfig, and because we
need a quick fix.

But as I said in the cover-letter, we can further improve the situation
in -next.
