We might need one small change for this to happen, it is to add a
comment in .config which display the output of `$(CC) --version | head
-1`. Simple :-).
If the output of `$(CC) --version` changes, kconfig will run again. That
would be enough to detect tool chain updates, right?

Have a look at "include/config/auto.conf.cmd" to find out how kconfig is
forced to run again.

I'll prepare a patch.
