Not sure if it's relevant, but, I've enclosed (1) a bash script that
produces an analysis of the CONFIG_ variables in a specified Linux
kernel source tree, and (2) the results from running that on the 2.4.5
tree. It analyses all files matching '*.?' and '[Cc]' in the
specified tree, and reports on the results by summarising both how
many times each CONFIG_* variable is used total, which files it is
used in, and how many times it is used in each file.

Best wishes from Riley.
