It does, both per the documentation and testing it. But fixdep
explicitly removes include/linux/kconfig.h along with
include/generated/autoconf.h and a few others. So when you rebuilt after
adding the #include to kconfig.h, I think nothing actually got built,
and no new .o.cmd files got generated.

Doing a clean build does make include/linux/compiler_{types,gcc}.h and
the various fake include/config/.... they "depend" on appear in e.g.
lib/.clz_tab.o.cmd.

The whole point of fixdep and the include/config hierarchy is to be able
to remove the dependency on autoconf.h, but I'm not sure I understand
why kconfig.h itself is also forcibly removed.
