Subject[PATCH 6/8] ktest/config-bisect: Try harder to find a new config
Date
From: Scott Wood <oss@buserror.net>

It's possible that the arbitrarily chosen half of the config differences
fails to make any actual difference in the output config, due to options
that are present in .config but not independently changeable (e.g. the
mutually-exclusive symbols of a "choice" kconfig construct, or a symbol
that has been "select"ed by another).

Try harder to generate a new and different config by randomizing the key
order and bisection percentage, and repeating a few times.

Explicitly randomizing also makes it possible to skip a broken generated
config by simply calling the script again, even on older versions of Perl
that didn't automatically randomize hash order.
