[PATCH] Add CONFIG_HEADERS_CHECK option to automatically run 'make headers_check'
In order to encourage people to notice when they break the exported headers, add a config option which automatically runs the sanity checks when building vmlinux. That way, those who use allyesconfig will notice failures.

+ This option will extract the user-visible kernel headers whenever
+ building the kernel, and will run basic sanity checks on them to
+ ensure that exported files do not attempt to include files which
+ were not exported, etc.

+ If you're making modifications to header files which are

+ exported to $(INSTALL_HDR_PATH) (usually 'usr/include' in
