LKP(aka. 0Day) often reports issue related to the *recent* kernel commits/WIP patches publicly.
As the LKP keeping improvement, it will cover more aspects in the kernel so that more issues will be detected.

So in this case, which is related to too old kernel, it just reported it internally.

- it's not reasonable to keep the deprecated configs, right ?

- In my understanding, configs under kselftests are recommended by corresponding tests.
So if some configs are missing, it will impact the testing results

Do you mean the commit log should include above 2 reasons ?
