You didn't see the early versions ;)

I was a bit afraid that someone would come out with something similar
before it was done. Now you've given me a bad conscience :(

I've been working on it on and off in my spare time for six months or so.
Originally it was a project for automatically generating a minimal kernel for a
given system by automatically turning off options one by one and testing the
resulting kernel in an emulator (yeah, the minimal kernel you get out of that
process is broken in many ways, but you get some idea of what's needed and
what's not at least). That then grew into a general-purpose library.

iscriptconfig says

A Config instance 'c' for the architecture (i386) has been created.
>>> c["SLOW_WORK"].is_defined()

so yes, it it's undefined on i386 at least. Grepping through the kernel shows
it only appears in drivers/gpu/drm/Kconfig, so it's in fact undefined on all
