[PATCH 30/30] kbuild: test dead code/data elimination support in Kconfig




This config option should be enabled only when both the compiler and
the linker support necessary flags.  Add proper dependencies to Kconfig.

Unlike 'select', 'imply' is modest enough to observe those dependencies.
I suggested this in the help message.
