Hi All,

  I have added a symobol in thr config file, freshely ... eg.
CONFIG_USB_SERIAL_CONSOLE

i.e. there was no symbol at all ... but in the source code a check is
made for that symbol...

 So I have added that symbol in the config file,,,
unfortunately I am not getting that  flag value reflected,,,,


What I thought ,, Is there any other place where to identify this symbol...

as we export any symbol...

-- Thanks
Prabhu

What kind of config file?  Is it in a Kconfig* file?
If so, then the CONFIG_ prefix is implicit and you should just
use "USB_SERIAL_CONSOLE" as the symbol name.

Maybe now it's CONFIG_CONFIG_USB_SERIAL_CONSOLE.

Config symbols are produced as include/linux/autoconf.h at build time,
so you can look at that file to see what was produced/generated.
