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.
