25 for me the "/" search in "make menuconfig" tells me the structure
26 location, and the same search in "make nconfig" simply finds and jumps to
27 the location in that page.
29 Also for convenience I usually "make localyesconfig" then check it through
30 using "make nconfig" to quickly search in some menu and remove/add some
31 option.
33 I actually set aside an hour or two to go through the whole tree, paying
34 particular attention to everything marked NEW. I actually enjoy seeing what
35 new functionality has been added with each upgrade even if it is irrelevant
36 to my hardware. It's still good to know. Like the new built in NTFS support
37 in 5.15. I might have missed this if I hadn't come across it!
