yeah. There's a trick though that we use in the x86 tree (and which i'm
using in a script when queuing up new patches). The following command
will punch through any Kconfig black holes:

make drivers/isdn/hysdn/hysdn_procconf.o

(it wont always work as it needs a halfways reasonable .config, but it
works well enough to be part of my workflow.)

note that there's tons more stuff and dependencies that plain
allmodconfig does not catch - in this merge window alone i'm at around
20 fixes so far.
