I don't know. But I guess that all-in-one vmlinux file is easier to use
(e.g. no need to copy .ko files into initramfs nor /lib/modules/ directory
in the root filesystem image, no need to fetch .ko files when calculating
locations in the source code from kernel addresses, no need to worry about
availability of .ko loader program and request_module() dependency).

I worried that simple s/=y$/=m/ or s/=m$/=y/ on tristate config fails to satisfy
requirement/dependency. And I assumed that

/* Update until a loop caused no more changes */
do {
conf_cnt = 0;
check_conf(&rootmenu);
} while (conf_cnt);

is the location to make modifications in order to adjust requirement/dependency.
But I might be wrong. I just assumed that we should behave as if "make oldconfig"
after doing simple s/=y$/=m/ or s/=m$/=y/ on tristate config.

Does some later function automatically adjust requirement/dependency ? If yes,

conf_rewrite_mod_or_yes() should be put into the switch statement.

OK.

Then, we can do "sym_add_change_count(1);" instead of "return has_changed;".
