Sure. Except G+ came through, and we now have an even better hack for
this, that works entirely in the preprocessor.

That also means that you can use it for static initializers etc, so you can do

   int some_value = config_enabled(CONFIG_ENABLE_XYZ_BY_DEFAULT);

Paul, do you want to write the patch to change IS_ENABLED() to use this trick?

Trick courtesy of "comex ." on G+ (please do give him credit even if
he doesn't seem to use his real name):

  #define is_set(macro) is_set_(macro)
  #define macrotest_1 ,
  #define is_set_(value) is_set__(macrotest_##value)
  #define is_set__(comma) is_set___(comma 1, 0)
  #define is_set___(_, v, ...) v

and now "is_set(CONFIG_xyzzy)" works, and gives either 1 or 0 directly
in the preprocessor.

Obviously the names have to be changed here (let's not use
"macrotest_1" - make it something more internal), but the concept is
solid, and I would actually suggest having this as a generic "is this
macro set to 1" helper first, and then implement IS_ENABLED() in terms
of that.

My likee.
