Your changes to kernel-local should still be going through when

The message "override" is coming from the kernel tree not the

What process_configs.sh is doing is checking to make sure all of
the settings you have given will not get changed. Kconfig will
silently switch the settings of options if you set things
incorrectly, (switching from =y to =m or just turning options off
completely) which can be confusing. The goal of these checks is to be
pedantic and make sure all the values are set to what you expect. We
actually want to treat all warnings as errors because even if Kconfig
thinks this is a warning, the actual issue is that
CONFIG_PSTORE_LZ4HC_COMPRESS_DEFAULT may not be what you expect.
Thanks for the explanation.

If the options you've been using are working, it's probably fine
to turn the checks.
Yeah, I'll go with this. With your explanation I feel a lot better
about it. Thanks.
