[Buildroot] [PATCH 0 of 5 v3] Introduction of kconfig-package

This patch series introduces a kconfig-package infrastructure and already
converts the uclibc and busybox packages.

I believe this series is complete in the sense that it could be applied as
one whole, not yet including the conversion of linux and barebox.

In a subsequent series, linux and barebox can be converted to
kconfig-package too, but there will need to be some changes to
kconfig-package to support them.
One particular difference with uclibc/busybox is that linux/barebox use a
different method to copy the original config file: instead of simply copying
it to build_dir/.config, it is first copied to arch/.../buildroot_defconfig
and then 'make ... buildroot_defconfig' is called. I'm considering in adding
a FOO_KCONFIG_INSTALL_CONFIG_CMDS variable to support this, which defaults
to the simple copy used by busybox/uclibc, but can be overwritten
appropriately by linux and barebox.
Anyway, this part is not yet ready and will only be available for 2014.11.
