I tried to reproduce this with no luck:

$ mv hugh .config 
$ make 
scripts/kconfig/conf -s arch/i386/Kconfig
* Restart config...
* Power management options (ACPI, APM)
Power Management support (PM) [Y/n/?] y
  Legacy Power Management API (DEPRECATED) (PM_LEGACY) [N/y/?] n
  Power Management Debug Support (PM_DEBUG) [N/y/?] n
Suspend to RAM and standby (SUSPEND) [Y/n/?] (NEW) n              <= I selected 'n'
Hibernation (aka 'suspend to disk') (HIBERNATION) [N/y/?] (NEW) n <= I selected 'n'
* Fusion MPT device support
Fusion MPT ScsiHost drivers for SPI (FUSION_SPI) [Y/n/m/?] y
Fusion MPT ScsiHost drivers for FC (FUSION_FC) [N/m/y/?] n
Fusion MPT ScsiHost drivers for SAS (FUSION_SAS) [N/m/y/?] n
Maximum number of scatter gather entries (16 - 128) (FUSION_MAX_SGE) [128] 128
Fusion MPT misc device (ioctl) driver (FUSION_CTL) [N/m/y/?] n
Fusion MPT logging facility (FUSION_LOGGING) [N/y/?] (NEW) 
# configuration written to .config
  CHK     include/linux/version.h
  CHK     include/linux/utsrelease.h
make: *** [_all] Interrupt

$ grep HOTPLUG_CPU .config

If you let kbuild do a silentoldconfig then I expect
it to be set due to SUSPEND being set.

If you can still reproduce it could you then explan the
exect stepts to do so.

PS. I used latest -linus as of yesterday.
