I want to upgrade kernel which has version 3.1.6 and use my current .config (using "make oldconfig"). What is the best way to do that?
1. Upgrade directly from 3.1.6 to 3.8.7 using .config from 3.1.6.
2. Upgrade as 3.1.6 -> 3.2* -> 3.3* -> ... -> 3.8.7 and use previous .config on each step.

Using old .config with "make menuconfig" seems to be not the best way here since I do not remember exactly which options in the past I enabled or disabled.

option 1.

If you pickup option 2, you will need to add new options that appears on each version, options that might have been removed since. Waste of time.
