 This is a refresh of the patches that describe in the manual how
to save the configuration in the board directory, that add the
post-build overlay option, and that does 'make savedefconfig' save
to a configured file rather than "defconfig".

 The patches that add a xxx-update-config for each package with a
configuration possibility and that add an update-all-configs goal
have been left out, because at the BR developer days it was decided
to always update the config after you do a xxx-menuconfig. So
those patches will become superfluous anyway. They will come in a
separate series.

 These patches come as a series rather than individually because the
later ones all update the documentation that is added in the first
