Good question.
Well, I added this to menuconfig because there is the place where
kernel source is configured. So, if it is possible to set a custom
tarball, then why not setting the local directory as well?
Correct me if I am wrong, but this would keep all in one place.
Anyway, I think it is good to have another method.

Best regards,
Rafal
