Subject[PATCH] kconfig: Make KCONFIG_ALLCONFIG work with randconfig.
Adrian mentioned a few weeks ago that KCONFIG_ALLCONFIG is the way to
go to ensure that things like allyes/allmod/allnoconfig work with a
constrained set of symbols, with the implication that this holds
true for randconfig as well.

While allyes/mod/noconfigs do seem to work fine with KCONFIG_ALLCONFIG
provisions, randconfig tramples all over the provided values at perhaps
not surprisingly, random.

Debugging this a bit, there seemed to be two issues:

- SYMBOL_DEF and SYMBOL_DEF_USER overlap, which made
def_sym->flags the same regardless of whether we came from an

- clobbering of the fixed value in conf_choice() by way of
random() def assignment.

While I don't pretend to have any idea what I'm doing in Kconfig,
changing SYMBOL_DEF_USER to reuse the SYMBOL_DEF3 bit (and thereby
separating it from SYMBOL_DEF) in addition to checking the def_sym flag
before randomly assigning a new value ended up fixing things up.
