Yeah. Maybe we should call it "config_enabled()" - the lower-case
hopefully makes it clear that it acts as a C function, not a
preprocessor one.

Code like "if (config_enabled(IPV6))" looks reasonably readable to me.

I asked G+ if they can come up with a better trick. They did well on
the whole bitmask calculations, maybe somebody can figure out how to
make the same macro work for both preprocessor and C code...
