9 I dont think there is a dedicated CLI tools for this, but the Kconfig
10 files in the kernel directory contains the help text. So if you know the
11 name of the config option is question (or its placement in the directory
12 hierarcy) you can grep -r for it and read/grep/parse the Kconfig file in
13 question.
