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.
