Another idea might be to add the following to
scripts/kconfig/Makefile:



@@ -77,7 +76,13 @@ PHONY += $(simple-targets)
$(simple-targets): $(obj)/conf
$(Q)$< $(silent) --$@ $(Kconfig)

-PHONY += savedefconfig defconfig
+PHONY += findconfig savedefconfig defconfig
+
+findconfig: $(obj)/conf
+ $(Q)$< $(silent) --$@=$(KCONFIG_FIND) $(Kconfig)
+
+%_findconfig: $(obj)/conf
+ $(Q)$< $(silent) --findconfig=$* $(Kconfig)

savedefconfig: $(obj)/conf
$(Q)$< $(silent) --$@=defconfig $(Kconfig)





Instead of adding a separate program for this,
you can modify scripts/kconfig/conf.c

- add 'findconfig' to enum input_mode
- add 'findconfig' to long_opts[]
- add 'case findconfig' to main() function



Then, you can do

$ make findconfig KCONFIG_FIND=DRM_HISI_HIBMC

or

$ make DRM_HISI_HIBMC_findconfig

as a shorthand.


scripts/findconf is unneeded
but you can put your own script in ~/bin
if you want to save your typing even more.
