Please break this down in logical change!

There is very good stuff in this patch but it need to be digested slowly :)

I'd see it as:
  - introduce the config structure
  - convert all globals reference to use structure members
  - get rid of these `_level' prefix and NULL pointer passing.
  - then introduce the subsource logic (and please separate parser
update and regen of shipped file)

There is no need for the `_level' prefixing, NULL pointer passing, and
conditionally select the structure or the global. The sub-tree should
be treated the same way as the global tree. Basically:

-   if (!sym_defconfig_list) {
+   if (!(l ? l->sym_defconfig_list : sym_defconfig_list)) {

should just be:

-   if (!sym_defconfig_list) {
+   if (!l->sym_defconfig_list) {

no extra complexity/un-maintainability. You may not even need to
change function prototypes if the current tree never expect to use
anything but `current_config'.

On a performance p.o.v., you may want to have one commit caching the
prefix length, to avoid all the strlen(...).

on a pure stylistic side
  - don't pass 0 when you mean NULL (well, you will no longer need that actually)
  - loop with 6 level of indentation are hideous, especially for
condition where you can just `break;' early

I'll prepare a new patch next week with your suggestion. Its
nice to hear that there is some interest in this.
