BR2_CONFIG_COPY copies the config file to /etc/buildroot.config
as 0600 during target-finalize after overlay copy, but before
post-build script install.

Changes v1 to v2
 - Corrected wording of config helper message (Thomas De Schampheleire)
 - Moved order in menu to reflect actual order of the operation
