Buildroot overrides certain directives in kernel configuration.

Example: when doing a clean build, unless BR2_TARGET_ROOTFS_INITRAMFS in
Buildroot's config file is set, kernel is built without initramfs support
despite it was enabled in file referenced by

On the other hand if BR2_TARGET_ROOTFS_INITRAMFS is set, kernel image contains
complete root filesytem.

This is unacceptable - this way it is a problem to build kernel with initramfs
support but without actual filesystem embedded in the kernel, Buildroot shall
not be such invasive when custom configuration file is provided.
