In the following patch series, if we agree on "[PATCH 1/5] package:
rename <pkg>_CONFIG_FIXUP to <pkg>_CONFIG_SCRIPTS", then I believe it
would be better to take it for 2013.02 so that we don't have
<pkg>_CONFIG_FIXUP introduced in 2013.02 and then later a rename of
this new variable.
However, the other patches, 2 to 5, should probably not be taken for
2013.02, but only applied to -next once it opens.
