Please additionally attach those files next time, since the developers
(I think at least Takashi) prefer it.

If I understood it correctly it does not work yet [2]. If this explains
the issue for you please update [3] and you could also submit a report
to the Gentoo bug tracking system (BTS). Maybe some developer will
implement this. You could also figure out if there exists a ticket in
the Kernel BTS and submit a feature request or, if it already exists,
follow up there.

Thanks and good luck,
