For the record we are working on making the integration
easier for non-kernel projects utilizing kconfig.
In headlines that is:
- Make CONFIG_ prefix configurable at buildtime
Basically adding -DCONFIG_=BR2_ will do the trick
- Use mainmenu entry as headline in the frontends
- Drop "kernel" from all help texts
So there is no longer any "kernel" texts hardcoded
I guess a few other nits I forgot.
I hope this is merged in next merge window - but no promises.
The objective is that external users like buildroot no
longer need to carry any patched to use kconfig.
We will _not_ meet this objective at next merge window,
but I hope we will be rather close.
