Hm, yes, it's a generic behavior - there is no any separator at 'endmenu' and
config options stick together.

I've created a patch to fix that. What do you think about it?
I can send it to LKML separately.

Subject: [PATCH 1/1] kconfig: Terminate menu blocks with a newline in the
 generated config

Currently menu blocks start with a pretty header but end with nothing in
the generated config. So next config options stick together with the
options from the menu block.

Let's terminate menu blocks with a newline in the generated config.
