Depends what you call "recent". Looks like v2.6.30-ish.

commit 03fa25da8335a942161a8070b3298cfd4edf9b6a

    kconfig: make localmodconfig to run streamline_config.pl
    Running the streamline_config.pl script manually can still be confusing
    for some users. This patch adds the localmodconfig option. This will
    automatically run streamline_config.pl on the current .config and
    then run "make silentoldconfig" to fix any wholes that might have been
     $ make localmodconfig
    This will remove any module configurations in .config that are not needed
    to compile the modules that are loaded.
