I have a few questions about this patch series. All of them are
about using *config (i.e., this is not a patch review).
Subject: [PATCH 12/19] kconfig: add symbol option config syntax
Do we have any examples of this? (where)
Subject: [PATCH 14/19] kconfig: Add search option for xconfig
How do I search? I don't see it in the menu or any Help for it.
Subject: [PATCH 15/19] kconfig: finer customization via popup menus
Subject: [PATCH 16/19] kconfig: create links in info window
How? what does link look like? are there any in the current
Kconfig menus? I'd like to see one (or several).
Subject: [PATCH 17/19] kconfig: jump to linked menu prompt
I'd like to see this too. Where can I see it?
