May be a stupid question, but I can not find CONFIG_VIDEO_DEV in the kernel 3.6.*
The search in make menuconfig shows only this:
Symbol: VIDEO_DEV [=n]
Type : tristate
without location.
I've just copied .config from my previous kernel (3.5.6) and then did 'make menuconfig'. After exiting and saving config lots of CONFIG were disappeared: http://vpaste.net/Y2H22
Where does the problem lie?

copy in the old .config
run make oldconfig take time to consider carefully the choices presented -- should format .config template to match new kernel version
run make menuconfig and take a good look

new kernel versions do add and remove symbols
