[PATCH] kbuild: permanently fix kernel configuration include mess
Russell King [Sun, 30 Oct 2005 21:42:11 +0000 (22:42 +0100)]
Include autoconf.h into every kernel compilation via the gcc command line
using -imacros.  This ensures that we have the kernel configuration
included from the start, rather than relying on each file having #include
<linux/config.h> as appropriate.  History has shown that this is something
which is difficult to get right.

Since we now include the kernel configuration automatically, make
configcheck becomes meaningless, so remove it.
