Subjectwhy no Kconfig in "kernel" subdir?

I was adding a new general syscall the other day, and it struck me as
odd that there is no Kconfig in the "kernel" subdirectory.

A quick search shows 36 separate config options being used in that
subdirectory (stuff like PREEMPT, SMP, FUTEX, HOTPLUG, SYSCTL, etc).
Why is there no Kconfig for it? As it stands, all of these have to be
copied and pasted in every single arch. This seems odd.

Would people be open to a series of patches that create a new Kconfig
and start moving generic stuff to it? Or are these things really
arch-specific enough to warrent massive duplication?
