[PATCH] kbuild: drop check for CONFIG_ in headers_check

From: Sam Ravnborg
Date: Fri Jan 30 2009 - 17:55:11 EST

The check for references to CONFIG_ symbols in exported headers turned
out to be too agressive with the current state of affairs.
After the work of Jaswinder to clean up all relevant cases we are down
to almost pure noise.

So lets drop the check for now - we can always add it back later
should our headers be ready for that.

Hi Ingo.
Please include this in the tip/core/header-fixes brach
as this is the natural path towards mainline.

Jaswinder - thanks for your effort chasing all these warnings!
