Merge branch 'kconfig' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/mmarek/kbuild
Pull kconfig updates from Michal Marek: - use pkg-config to detect curses libraries - clean up the way curses headers are searched - Some randconfig fixes, of which one had to be reverted - KCONFIG_SEED for randconfig debugging - memuconfig memory leak plugged - menuconfig > breadcrumbs > navigation - xconfig compilation fix - Other minor fixes * 'kconfig' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/mmarek/kbuild: kconfig: fix lists definition for C++ Revert "kconfig: fix randomising choice entries in presence of KCONFIG_ALLCONFIG" kconfig: implement KCONFIG_PROBABILITY for randconfig kconfig: allow specifying the seed for randconfig kconfig: fix randomising choice entries in presence of KCONFIG_ALLCONFIG kconfig: do not override symbols already set kconfig: fix randconfig tristate detection kconfig/lxdialog: rationalise the include paths where to find {.n}curses{,w}.h menuconfig: Add "breadcrumbs" navigation aid menuconfig: Fix memory leak introduced by jump keys feature merge_config.sh: Avoid creating unnessary source softlinks kconfig: optionally use pkg-config to detect ncurses libs menuconfig: optionally use pkg-config to detect ncurses libs

+Environment variables for 'randconfig'
+You can set this to the integer value used to seed the RNG, if you want
+to somehow debug the behaviour of the kconfig parser/frontends.
+If not set, the current time will be used.
+This variable can be used to skew the probabilities. This variable can
+be unset or empty, or set to three different formats:
+ KCONFIG_PROBABILITY y:n split y:m:n split
