    Subject[PATCH] fix allmodconfig breakage
    	If you use KCONFIG_ALLCONFIG (even with empty file) you get
    broken allmodconfig/allyesconfig; CONFIG_MODULES gets turned off,
    with obvious massive fallout.

    Breakage had been introduced when conf_set_all_new_symbols()
    got used for allmodconfig

    What happens is that sym_calc_value(modules_sym) done in
    conf_read_simple() sets SYMBOL_VALID on both modules_sym and MODULES.
    When we get to conf_set_all_new_symbols(), we set sym->def[S_DEF_USER]
    on everything, but it has no effect on sym->curr for the symbols that
    already have SYMBOL_VALID - these are stuck.

    Solution: use sym_clear_all_valid() in there. Note that it
    makes reevaluation of modules_sym redundant - sym_clear_all_valid()
    will do that itself.
