parentkconfig: add xstrdup() helper (diff)
kconfig: set SYMBOL_AUTO to the symbol marked with defconfig_list
The 'defconfig_list' is a weird attribute. If the '.config' is missing, conf_read_simple() iterates over all visible defaults, then it uses the first one for which fopen() succeeds. config DEFCONFIG_LIST string depends on !UML option defconfig_list default "/lib/modules/$UNAME_RELEASE/.config" default "/etc/kernel-config" default "/boot/config-$UNAME_RELEASE" default "$ARCH_DEFCONFIG" default "arch/$ARCH/defconfig" However, like other symbols, the first visible default is always written out to the .config file. This might be different from what has been actually used. For example, on my machine, the third one "/boot/config-$UNAME_RELEASE" is opened, like follows: $ rm .config $ make oldconfig 2>/dev/null scripts/kconfig/conf --oldconfig Kconfig # # using defaults found in /boot/config-4.4.0-112-generic # * * Restart config... * * * IRQ subsystem * Expose irq internals in debugfs (GENERIC_IRQ_DEBUGFS) [N/y/?] (NEW) However, the resulted .config file contains the first one since it is visible: $ grep CONFIG_DEFCONFIG_LIST .config CONFIG_DEFCONFIG_LIST="/lib/modules/$UNAME_RELEASE/.config" In order to stop confusing people, prevent this CONFIG option from being written to the .config file.
