abs/linux/PKGBUILD: Usage of 'yes "" | make config'

I would like to know the use of 'yes "" | make config' in the Linux kernel PKGBUILD (Since the script would have earlier copied a tailored config file to the Linux source directory).

'make config' can require user input, in certain circumstances. 'yes' automates that, so that the package building process is not interrupted.

But then, what is the necessity of 'make config'. As i had pointed out, a suitable config file would have been copied to the linux source directory earlier in the script.
