Press <Z> to show all config symbols which have prompts.

I myself found this useful too. For example, I need to test
ftrace/tracing and want to be sure all the tracing features are
enabled, so I enter the "Tracers" menu, and press <Z> to
see if there is any config hidden.
I noticed gconfig and xconfig have a button "Show all options",
but that's a bit too much, and I think normally what we are not
interested in those configs which have no prompt thus can't be
changed by users.
-*- Kernel Function Tracer
- - Kernel Function Graph Tracer
[*] Interrupts-off Latency Tracer
- - Preemption-off Latency Tracer
[*] Sysprof Tracer
Here you can see 2 tracers are not selectable, and then can find
out how to make them selectable.
I also add this support for gconfig, but haven't done for xconfig.
btw: are there many users using gconfig/xconfig today ?
