Yes, it could be two config options:

bzImage includes System map
bzImage includes System config

But actually we're not talking about a kernel build option at all,
we're just talking about cat'ing one or two gzip files onto the end of
bzImage, and so the only reason for making it a config option would be
for taking care of really clueless people like me who don't know
that. Otherwise it would just be a little script or perhaps an option
on 'make install'.
