Well, I told you I'd write some Kconfig magic for you, but I can't since
I can't apply these patches. :)

You need this in a Kconfig file somewhere:

	prompt "Good prompt"
	def_bool y
	depends on X86_32 && EXPERIMENTAL
		Lots of fun help...

	prompt "Enable all kernel namespace support"
	selects IPC_NS NET_NS ...
		This option will save you having to go track down
		all of the individual places that namespaces are
		supported in the kernel.

		If you don't turn this on, the restart porttion
		of checkpoint/restart gets a lots less reliable...	

probably in checkpoint/Kconfig.

Then, in all of the architectures' arch/*/Kconfig files, you need to:

source "checkpoint/Kconfig"

Then, the Makefile looks like this:
