    don't hijack others' threads; you can start your own for free.

    provided you have

    options     INCLUDE_CONFIG_FILE

    in your kernel, you can use this:

    strings -n3 /kernel | sed -ne '/^___/s///p'

If you cc me or remove the list(s) completely I'll most likely ignore
your message.    see
