Parent article: Review: Linux Kernel in a Nutshell
The book doesn't seem to elaborate on "make randconfig" other than saying what it does: pick random answers to the various configuration choices.
I assume the point is to find cases where the kernel won't compile with some sets of configuration answers. If so, it's cute. I can imagine a server sitting there downloading git trees and running this, and reporting whatever failures it finds.
