Hi there..

For some reason this is the only piece that has not made it
into the mainline. I'm not sure who's shepherding this through
but i've attached the outstanding patch.

+config IKCONFIG
+ bool "Kernel .config support"
+ ---help---
+ This option enables the complete Linux kernel ".config" file
+ contents, information on compiler used to build the kernel,
+ kernel running when this kernel was built and kernel version
+ from Makefile to be saved in kernel. It provides documentation
+ of which kernel options are used in a running kernel or in an
+ on-disk kernel. This information can be extracted from the kernel
+ image file with the script scripts/extract-ikconfig and used as
+ input to rebuild the current kernel or to build another kernel.
+ It can also be extracted from a running kernel by reading
+ /proc/ikconfig/config and /proc/ikconfig/built_with, if enabled.
+ /proc/ikconfig/config will list the configuration that was used
+ to build the kernel and /proc/ikconfig/built_with will list
+ information on the compiler and host machine that was used to
+ build the kernel.
+ bool "Enable access to .config through /proc/ikconfig"
