Well, no sane person will prefix their variables with
"__enabled_CONFIG_", so I'm not so worried about the namespace pollution.

Sure, I would also prefer a solution without that doesn't require
generating new macros. But your's and Arnaud's trick doesn't eliminate
the configured-out code at -O0, while with the help of the generated
helper macros, the compiler sees an if(0) or if(1).

With this extra expansion, the passed CONFIG_FOO expands to 1 here and
the KCONFIG(_NON)_MODULE macros will then only see the 1 and fail.
