    Subjectkbuild - pending stuff, and Maintainer news
    Following is stuff pending in kbuild-next.git for upcoming
    merge window.

    - make *config targets are less chatty (and thus faster too)
    - support for arch/$ARCH/include
    - 3x faster headers_check and much less verbose
    - added a diffconfig utility that shows difference between two configs

    Most of the kconfig stuff is fresh patches - the rest has been in kbuild-next.git
    for a while and thus in -next (which has caught a lot of issues - thanks Stephen!).

    Other news
    We are moving soon and this will impact both my connectivity and
    the time I can use on kbuild stuff.
    So if I fail to act on your mails then I am most likely busy
    moving, painting, gardening or other practical stuff.
    If you really need help then drop by and help me - then
    we can always fix the kbuild stuff over a beer.
