Why not have the /proc/config option but instead of being plain text,
make it binary with a userspace app that can interpret it?

It could have a signature as to kernel version + patches and the rest
would be just bits.

Instead of:

# CONFIG_SBUS is not set

You'd have
2.4.3-pre3:1101111100000100000000 . . . . .
