LKP/0Day will check if all configs listing under selftests are able to be enabled properly.

Can you please state what you arr fxing and also keep the sentences
75 chars or less.

Where is LKP warning?
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.

Include the warning and explain why this
change is necessary.
- 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 ?

Correct. I am asking the commit log to include these details.
