Your config and this sha1 still make "make oldconfig" ask few questions
and then it compiles just fine, are you sure about the config?
These are questions on "make oldconfig":
Kernel Live Patching (LIVEPATCH) [N/y/?] (NEW)
Stack Protector buffer overflow detection (STACKPROTECTOR) [Y/n/?] (NEW)
Strong Stack Protector (STACKPROTECTOR_STRONG) [Y/n/?] (NEW)

Oh well I think I misunderstood what "def_bool" actually does (it does
