I tried to reproduce this with no luck:
$ mv hugh .config
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
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
make: *** [_all] Interrupt
$ grep HOTPLUG_CPU .config
# CONFIG_HOTPLUG_CPU is not set
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.
