Subject[PATCH 13/13] Re-enable and clean up "check_config()" in headers_check.pl
Date
I recently got bit by a CONFIG_ in userspace bug.  This has apparently
happened before, but the check got disabled for triggering too much.
In order to reduce false positives, I added some hueristics to avoid
detecting comments.

Since these tests all pass, I've now re-enabled them.
