From: Michal Marek on
Hi Linus,

this is the kconfig part of kbuild. We have four new *config targets:
* oldnoconfig: set all new options to 'n'
* listnewconfig: list all unset config options
* alldefconfig: set all options to their defaults specified in Kconfig
* savedefconfig: write a defconfig file with only the differences from
an alldefconfig (aka minimal defconfig)

Kconfig also warns when a select statement selects a symbol with unmet
dependencies (which typically results in a broken config). Li Zefan did
quite some usability fixes to the visual config interfaces.


The following changes since commit 9fe6206f400646a2322096b56c59891d530e8d51:
