    Two points about the implmentation that I do not like...

    The kvmconfig is an x86 specific thing - so it does not belong
    in the scripts/kconfig/Makefile

    The *config namespace is general config targets.

    Move the implmentation to arch/x86/Makefile and name the target
    something that does not match the *config pattern.


    make kvmbootable

    To tell that this convert the current config to a kvmbootable config.

    And then add the target to the x86 specific help too.
