    It doesn't work for me yet, but I don't see why not. It does work when I do
    e.g. a 'make defconfig' in the current directory, but not when I set

    It's probably easiest if you try to debug it yourself. It's as simple as:
    $ mkdir /tmp/kbuild
    $ KBUILD_OUTPUT=/tmp/kbuild make defconfig

    One other thing. I wonder if this implementation will always reliably
    result in the *current* SHA1 being included in the .config. AFAICT
    the .config only actually gets written if there are changes, or if you
    explicitly do a 'make oldconfig'.

    But if you e.g. pull a stable update and just run 'make', the .config will
    likely remain unchanged and will thus still contain the SHA1 from a
    previous build.
