[PATCH] kconfig: Add merge_config.sh script

From: John Stultz
Date: Mon Oct 24 2011 - 18:49:39 EST

No changes here from the last time, but since I didn't get any
feedback last time, I wanted to send this out for possible inclusion.

After noticing almost every distro has their own method of managing
config fragments, I went looking at some best practices, and wanted
to try to consolidate some of the different approaches so this fairly
simple infrastructure can be shared (and new distros/build systems
don't have to implement yet another config fragment merge script).

This script is most influenced by the Windriver tools used in
the Yocto Project, reusing some portions found there.

This script merges multiple config fragments, warning on any
overrided values. It then sets any unspecified values to their
default, then finally checks to make sure no specified value was
dropped due to unsatisfied dependencies.

I'm sure this implementation won't work for everyone, and I expect
it will need to evolve to adapt for various use cases. But I think
its a reasonable starting point.

* Reworked to use alldefconfig instead of the proposed
olddefconfig as suggested by Sam Ravnborg.

* Script improvements from Dmitri.
* allnoconfig option from Darren
* pre-make exit option from Darren
* lots of other fixes/cleanups from Darren.
* Fix final check to not compain about config values in comments

Please let me know if you have any comments or thoughts!
