Try an make oldconfig before doing the make menuconfig next time around. make 
oldconfig will adapt the .config file for the new kernel by removing stale 
symbols, and asking you when new symbols were added.

I presume 2.6.12->16 would be somewhat of a pain here (because quite a lot 
changed between these kernel versions), but 2.6.15->16 works beautifully, for 
example, only asking you for the new netfilter infrastructure.

Try it next time.
