On six architectures, it's still the right directory, your patch breaks it.

You could write e.g.

default symbol values from one of arch/{$ARCH}/defconfig or
arch/${ARCH}/configs/${PLATFORM}_defconfig, depending on
the architecture.

It would also be consistent to list the specific defconfigs here, like

"make ${PLATFORM}_defconfig"
Create a ./.config file by using the default
symbol values from
Use "make help" to see a list of the available
platforms on your architecture.

Not also that your patch should be merged through a subsystem maintainer.
If you don't know who that is, use scripts/
For scripts/kconfig/* and README it suggests sending it to Sam, Roman and, which sounds right.
