I applied this to kbuild-2.6.git#kconfig, but I won't be sending this
and the config_is_xxx patch to Linus now. First, I'm a bit in hurry and
there have been proposals for either a different name of the macro, or a
different implementation, second, the fixdep fix is not here, so we
wouldn't be able to make use of the feature anyway. So let's settle on a
final solution for 2.6.41 or 3.1 or whatever comes second next.
