This patch series (part of it poster earlier as RFC) has as main goal to
fix the uclibc kconfig handling with following requirements in mind:

- neither foo-menuconfig nor foo-update-config should have a dependency
  on the toolchain (which means we cannot depend on foo-configure)

- 'clean foo-menuconfig' should start from the specified (custom) config

- 'foo-menuconfig foo-update-config' should preserve the changes made in
  the menuconfig step (this problem is reported for uclibc with bug #7154

- 'make foo-menuconfig; make foo-menuconfig' should preserve the changes
  made in the menuconfig step.

- 'make clean foo-update-config' should copy the initial file, do any
  fixups, and then save the config

Once this series is accepted, the plan is:
- to extract the kconfig-related bits to a kconfig-package infrastructure.
- to convert busybox, linux and barebox to this kconfig-package infra too.
