Looking for Better Ways to Configure Kernels.

Hi Martin,

I sometimes use make menuconfig; it allows one to select options through a 
series of menus, so it is easier when you want to change a few specific 
options.  Your configuration gets written to .config, so you can copy that 
file elsewhere and maintain multiple copies and rotate them in as needed 
if you have multiple kernel configurations that you're building on the 
same machine.  I'm pretty sure there is an option to have the contents of 
.config placed in the kernel so that it can be retrieved from a running 
kernel, but I'm not sure how to do this.
