SubjectRe: linux-2.4.6-pre6: numerous dep_{bool,tristate} $CONFIG_ARCH_xxx bugs

if [ "$CONFIG_xyz" = "y" ]; then
bool CONFIG_bar
fi

CONFIG_bar can be undefined, not 'n'. While that can cause problems,
it is also valid config code. If I interpret AC's cryptic comments
correctly, there may be code which assumes that undefined variables are
just that, undefined. Setting all variables to 'n' initially by Adam's
script will break such code.

This type of code treats undefined variables as "don't care", not as
"forbidden". Is there any such code? I don't know for sure, but I am
sure that a change of this magnitude does not belong in 2.4.

The problem Adam was trying to fix was

dep_bool CONFIG_bar $CONFIG_ARCH_foo

where if the arch is not foo then bar is incorrectly allowed because
CONFIG_ARCH_foo is undefined. IMHO it is safe to assume that all arch
dependent config settings are meant to be off if the arch is not
selected, i.e. setting CONFIG_ARCH_foo=n for all arch except the
current one is safe. Setting _all_ CONFIG_foo=n for all variables is
not safe.

I still think this is the best approach, against 2.4.5-ac22.
