[Buildroot] [git commit master 1/1] Clean up our patches against kconfig

Our kconfig-to-buildroot2.patch hasn't been kept up to date with all
the changes made into package/config, and a single patch wasn't very
practical to maintain all our changes. Therefore, this commit adds a
package/config/patches directory, which contains a Quilt series of
patches that correspond to our modifications to the kconfig mechanism.
The huge kconfig-to-buildroot2.patch has been split into 16 smaller
patches. The purpose of some of the modifications has been clearly
identified, while some others were not identified.
The 16 patches together do match exactly the old
kconfig-to-buildroot2.patch. We have been very careful in making sure
that we wouldn't loose any of our modifications.
The only modifications made are :
* Instead of renaming the kernel Makefile to Makefile.kconfig and
naming the Buildroot Makefile just 'Makefile', we instead keep the
original package/config/Makefile from the kernel
scripts/kconfig/Makefile and name the Buildroot Makefile
package/config/Makefile.br. The main Buildroot Makefile is modified
* The documentation README.buildroot2 is updated to explain how to
upgrade to a newer version of scripts/kconfig.
* The kconfig-language.txt documentation is removed, as anybody can
easily find it in the kernel sources so there's no need to
duplicate it here.

Patch is too large, so refusing to show it
