    Oh, but I have a sick and twisted mind. And I'm incredibly smart and
    photogenic too.

    Here's an implementation of IS_ENABLED() that works in C. Well,
    "gcc-C". It depends on the optimizer DTRT, but gcc really does seem to
    do it.

    Ready? You *will* go blind - blinded by the pure beauty and intellect
    in this thing:

    #define IS_DEFINED(x) (__stringify(CONFIG_##x)[0]=='1')

    That really is a piece of art. I'm expecting that the Guggenheim will
    contact me any moment now about it.

    Of course, the above does *not* work for a pre-processor, but hey, you
    can't have everything. It literally is *only* valid in C code. You
    can't have everything. In the pre-processor, you can just use


    like you always could, or use another helper macro for the "defined(x)" magic.
