Thanks for adding "menuconfig" support :) I just tried it out and its working
great.  I should just mention one thing about the symlinks which are created.
On my system, I usually create a symlink (/usr/src/linux) to whatever kernel
version I am testing. But, this script is looking for /usr/src/linux-2.6.16
therefore it failed until I created a symlink in /usr/src pointing to
linux-2.6.16 -> linux- I would not assume that everyone is using the
same directory naming for every kernel version they test. It might be better to
just use "/usr/src/linux" as the default path.
