From: "Yann E. MORIN" <yann.morin.1998@free.fr>

Currently the odds to set each symbol is (rounded):
    booleans:   y: 50%          n: 50%
    tristates:  y: 33%  m: 33%  n: 33%

Introduce a KCONFIG_PROBABILITY environment variable to tweak the
probabilities (in percentage), as such:
    KCONFIG_PROBABILITY     y:n split           y:m:n split
    -----------------------------------------------------------------
[1] unset or empty          50  : 50            33  : 33  : 34
[2] N                        N  : 100-N         N/2 : N/2 : 100-N
    N:M                     N+M : 100-(N+M)      N  :  M  : 100-(N+M)
    N:M:L                    N  : 100-N          M  :  L  : 100-(M+L)

[1] The current behaviour is kept as default, for backward compatibility
[2] The solution initially implemented by Peter for Buildroot, see:
    http://git.buildroot.org/buildroot/commit/?id=3435c1afb5

I did a naive test with the current kconfig branch and with
yem-kconfig-for-next:

$ git checkout a45c7df
$ echo CONFIG_MODULES=y >all.config
$ >test-orig; for i in `seq 1000`; do KCONFIG_ALLCONFIG=1 make
randconfig || break; grep -c '=m' .config >>test-orig; done
...
$ git checkout e43956e
$ >test-new; ...

$ awk '{ sum += $1; num++ } END { print sum / num}' test-orig
573.247
$ awk '{ sum += $1; num++ } END { print sum / num}' test-new
565.194

I am not a statistician, but this looks OK to me. For reference, the
figure was ~340 with the previous patch.

I pulled your changes to kbuild.git#kconfig.

Thanks,
Michal

+KCONFIG_PROBABILITY
+--------------------------------------------------
+This variable can be used to skew the probabilities. This variable can
+be unset or empty, or set to three different formats:
+	KCONFIG_PROBABILITY     y:n split           y:m:n split
+	-----------------------------------------------------------------
+	unset or empty          50  : 50            33  : 33  : 34
+	N                        N  : 100-N         N/2 : N/2 : 100-N
+    [1] N:M                     N+M : 100-(N+M)      N  :  M  : 100-(N+M)
+    [2] N:M:L                    N  : 100-N          M  :  L  : 100-(M+L)
+
+where N, M and L are integers (in base 10) in the range [0,100], and so
+that:
+    [1] N+M is in the range [0,100]
+    [2] M+L is in the range [0,100]
+
+Examples:
+	KCONFIG_PROBABILITY=10
+		10% of booleans will be set to 'y', 90% to 'n'
+		5% of tristates will be set to 'y', 5% to 'm', 90% to 'n'
+	KCONFIG_PROBABILITY=15:25
+		40% of booleans will be set to 'y', 60% to 'n'
+		15% of tristates will be set to 'y', 25% to 'm', 60% to 'n'
+	KCONFIG_PROBABILITY=10:15:15
+		10% of booleans will be set to 'y', 90% to 'n'
+		15% of tristates will be set to 'y', 15% to 'm', 70% to 'n'
