    aconf is now ready to take care of defconfig, randconfig and all*config.
    That leaves us with two simple tasks for conf.c:
    config and oldconfig

    [silentoldconfig is gone as oldconfig is 'silent' now].

    aconf can take a base config for all the targets and avoids being
    clever where to locate it. (Read: does not use DEFCONFIG_LIST).

    I dunno if this is what you had in mind but I certainly like the result.
    A cleaned up set of patches will soon hit the kbuild list.

    I understand the solution that you describe but I fail to see the
    usefulness of it.
    Can I request you to elaborate a bit more how you see it used.
    I can give it a shot if I see it solving a real issue.

    This part I did not understand either. I am aware of the current behaviour
    but do not get the "dedicated function" thing.

    Thanks in advance,
