OK, this is fairly easy to use.

You get

.config:1181:warning: PCMCIA_LOAD_CIS selects FW_LOADER which fails its dependencies!

So you then go into `make menuconfig' and type /^fw_loader$ to display
FW_LOADER's dependencies.

Depends on: HOTPLUG && EMBEDDED

then do `egrep "HOTPLUG|EMBEDDED" .config'
And we discover weird things. Why does FW_LOADER depend on EMBEDDED?

And why the heck does INPUT depend on EMBEDDED?!??!

And what's up with CONFIG_SERIO?

Depends on: !S390 && (EMBEDDED || !X86)
hm.
