That would be intrusive for non-Linux users of kconfig. You would have
to hardcode a <linux/kconfig.h> in autoconf.h, which mean other
project would have to either mirror the Linux include tree structure,
or modify kconfig for the desired include path, if the feature is
desired at all. As I see it, Linux, through Kbuild, is a user of
kconfig.

I might send a patch to conditionally generate the __enable_<FOO>
stuff so that other project have the choice to use this feature or not
(and avoid namespace utilization if not), but that's low priority.
