The ordering of the patches 2 and 3 seem to be backward, you should first
generate the file otherwise this patch will break the build as the file
is not present.

To help test this I've added your patches to a development branch on my linux-next
tree to see if 0-day picks up any issues.

Guenter, to be even more thorough can I trouble you for a spin of this branch?

https://git.kernel.org/cgit/linux/kernel/git/mcgrof/linux-next.git/log/?h=20160818-gsoc-kconf_symb

Results should help give us an idea of troubling areas if this were to be added
as a new Kconfig feature even for R&D.
