[PATCH] kconfig: Fix Kconfig performance bug
When doing its recursive dependency check, scripts/kconfig/conf uses the flag SYMBOL_CHECK_DONE to avoid rechecking a symbol it has already checked. However, that flag is only set at the top level, so if a symbol is first encountered as a dependency of another symbol it will be rechecked every time it is encountered until it's encountered at the top level. This patch adjusts the flag setting so that each symbol will only be checked once, regardless of whether it is first encountered at the top level, or while recursing down from another symbol. On complex configurations, this vastly speeds up scripts/kconfig/conf. The config in the powerpc merge tree is particularly bad: this patch reduces the time for 'scripts/kconfig/conf -o arch/powerpc/Kconfig' by a factor of 40 on a G5. That's even including the time to print the config, so the speedup in the actual checking is more likely 2 or 3 orders of magnitude.
