I also was a fan of keeping KERNEL_TESTING_PATCHVER recently, as this adding-and-removing-again seemed a bit unnecessary to me. However, your argument about menuconfig is valid.

I just wonder whether we, alternatively, could just check for KERNEL_PATCHVER == KERNEL_TESTING_PATCHVER in the code setting up menuconfig, and thus defeat the root cause....
