    Ok, applying against the linux-next from today succeeds. And they seem
    to work, I can search for CONFIG_* stuff and then go straight to the

    A couple more observations:

    * The numbering in the search results looks kinda strange and
    non-intuitive IMHO. Would it be possible to use the ncurses cursor to
    iterate over the search results like one does in the normal menus? I.e.,
    the horizontal bar which highlights the item with the background color
    or whatever - can it be moved up and down with the arrow keys through
    the search results too?

    * when searching for "DELAY" for example, I get results without numbers
    to which I can't jump to:

    │ Symbol: DEFAULT_IO_DELAY_TYPE [=0]
    │ Type : integer

    │ Symbol: IO_DELAY_TYPE_0X80 [=0]
    │ Type : integer

    maybe because they don't have "---help---" section?

    In those cases, you probably want to hide those from the search results?

    Other than that it looks good and I'd say we need more menuconfig
    functionality like that which eases/speeds up working with that thing :).
