Get the package updated to not need to do a stupid kernel configuration
check is the proper solution.
Quite honestly, the linux-info eclass needs to be completely rewritten.
The eclass should *not* fail by default, for any reason. Any failures
should be optional and opt-in only. The linux-mod eclass, on the other
hand, *should* fail. Basically, not being able to get information about
the running/compiled kernel in a package which is not a kernel module
should never be a failure. In the current code, it is a failure.
Everybody who is getting this error, add yourself to CC on that bug.
That bug being fixed is what you need to resolve this issue.
