If I load an old config for a newer version of the kernel, I will still have access to the newer features correct?
When I set up a system I always make a base kernel, in which I have gone through every option of the kernel one at a time. Later kernels might add features, but either way, I have organized my boot partition and I always save my configs :O)
What do these two commands do, and (more importantly) what would be the reason to use them?
Thanks for the clarification!
