[Buildroot] PATCH/RFC: Move all project specific files into the output directory

Currently buildroot places most files generated by the build in the 
output directory (which can be overriden with O=). However a number of 
files remain within the buildroot tree.

These are:
.auto.deps (incidentally this no longer seems to be used)
.config
.config.cmd
.config.old
package/config/buildroot-config (which then gets copied into output/build)

This is a problem if you want to use the same buildroot directory to 
build two different targets to locations elsewhere in the filesystem with O=

The patch modifies config and the top level Makefile so that all files 
reside in the output folder.

Is anyone interested in getting this merged? All feedback welcome, let 
me know if the patch needs more work.
