That's how it has always been. It would be conceptually cleaner to put
it in output/, but we're keeping it in the toplevel dir for legacy
reasons (and because other projects using kconfig do that as well).

No, we have never put it in output by default. If you want that, simply
run make O=output menuconfig.
