When I'm simply upgrading a kernel, can't I use all my settings from the pervious kernel compilation?

Sure, simply copy of .config file from your previously compiled kernel directory into your the new kernel directory, and run the command:

make oldconfig

This will ask you in text-mode to answer questions that pertain only to new options in the kernel.
