Move the main help to the choice entry itself. All front ends expect the
help now there. E.g.

prompt "Processor family"
default M686
This is the processor type of your CPU. This information is used for
optimizing purposes. In order to compile a kernel that can run on
all x86 CPU types (albeit not optimally fast), you can specify
"386" here.

The choice options can still have there own help entries, but only xconfig
makes use of it.
I didn't do this automatically, since most help text entries need to be
splitted somehow. I wanted to do this for a few common entries, but I
haven't found the time yet.
