[Xen-devel] menuconfig bug?


I detected a nasty magic in last days: something change the /dev/null from character device into a normal file. I found this:

k8n-ultra9:/usr/src/linux-2.6-merge.hg# ls -la /dev/null
crw-rw-rw- 1 root root 1, 3 2006-01-30 23:56 /dev/null
k8n-ultra9:/usr/src/linux-2.6-merge.hg# make menuconfig
scripts/kconfig/mconf arch/x86_64/Kconfig
# using defaults found in .config

Your kernel configuration changes were NOT saved.

cat: /dev/null: No such file or directory
k8n-ultra9:/usr/src/linux-2.6-merge.hg# ls -la /dev/null
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 0 2006-01-30 23:57 /dev/null

k8n-ultra9:/usr/src/linux-2.6-merge.hg# hg parents
changeset:   19859:328a491adf0b

Debian Sid, amd64. I tried, the kernel from kernel.org don't do this.
