    Create arch/Config.in which contains

    define_bool CONFIG_ARCH_i386 n
    define_bool CONFIG_ARCH_ia64 n
    define_bool CONFIG_ARCH_sparc n

    etc., then change each of the arch/xxx/Config.in files to
    source arch/Config.in as their first line first. Still ugly but the
    mainline configs will be much more readable. It also guarantees that
    any future tests on $CONFIG_ARCH_somearch will work, even if the code
    does not use if statements.
