Seems ok to me.

Following the same idea, could you check that hex values? For the moment,
"zzz" can be in defconfig and make menuconfig will output it silently...
Perhaps an int can be entered out of its boundaries, too. I haven't

Note for Michael:

I'm implementing some check functions associated with each component of
the library. So that we can do:

- parse the
- parse the .config/defconfig
- check the validity of all component values with these functions
- user interaction: each time the user modifies a value through the
interface, the check is made with these functions. This implies that
the user can not enter wrong values (for the moment, the hex check is only
done at this moment in menuconfig)
- write .config/autoconf.h without check

So basically, I think we should check only initial and entered values,
so that the output is forced to be correct without having to check it.
