so now that we've both stated the problem, what's the solution? ;) as i said:

"i'm not sure how to re-jig the entry map in KConfig as there's a fair amount 
of black magic in there still. this is the point i'm hoping someone can pop 
up and offer some quick guidance on."

so .. yes, how do we change the actual entries in the entryMap in the most 
sane way?
