kconfig: have extract-ikconfig read ELF files
Steven Rostedt [Thu, 30 Apr 2009 16:22:20 +0000 (12:22 -0400)]
It would be nice to use extract-ikconfig to find the congfig.gz
in either vmlinux (not vmlinuz) or configs.ko.

This patch changes the script to also be able to read ELF files directly.

[ Impact: find config.gz in vmlinux and configs.ko ]
