* would a Kconfig directive "select CONFIG_x" even work?

  i could figure this out by RTFM, i suppose, but what the heck ...
given that the proper Kbuild directive would be:

  select x

what would happen if someone accidentally wrote:

  select CONFIG_x

would that fail to select Kbuild directive "x", or would the Kbuild
system quietly strip the "CONFIG_" prefix because it knew what you
really wanted and was trying to be helpful?
