Let me precise, as there may be confusion. I agree about the new
target issue, but definitively think this kconfig "option" (more a
hack, which required a special option within kconfig) should be
handled by Kbuild, not Kconfig, ie. I'd discard "option
defconfig_list". File decompression (and eventually which config to
pick) should be done prior to the invocation of Kconfig.
