The portable way to insert a newline in sed is using an escaped
literal newline character. I prefer the look of \n when it's supported

sed 's/a/a0\

Alternatively, you can use multiple print commands:

sed 'h; s/b/b0/; p; g; s/b/b1/'

In any case, this sed script translates #undef xxx to #define xxx 0
and CONFIG_xxx to BB_xxx.

sed 's/^#undef\(.*\)/#define\1 0/; s/ CONFIG_/ BB_/' < config.h > bb_config.h
