SubjectRe: How to check the kernel compile options ?

A really useful patch makes all the options appeared in /proc/config.gz. It's
used by SuSE kernels among others (mine, too :)
You can find the patch on (don't remember where exactly)

zgrep CONFIG_PROC /proc/config.gz
will give you the answer.

I have absolutely no clue why such a useful things is not integrated into the
kernel yet. It's even useful for such things as "build a kernel using the
same options as I have on current kernel but I don't know where my .config

FWICS It seems harmful to me.
