In fact, this behavior is an ill side-effect from MODULES_WITH_WORLD
stuff.  ru@ and yours truly are working on fixing this side-effect
(and then removing the evil stuff ;-)  When our fix is in the tree,
all modules will be able to pick up kernel options from the current
set of kernel's opt_*.h files instead of rolling their own versions.
This possibility has been there for a while, but modules' Makefiles
just ignored it.  Of course, one'll need to build modules along with
the kernel, not separately.
