The problem is that neither of these fit into the make command syntax:

make addconfig kvm debug

tells make to build three different targets, and

make addconfig=kvm

tells make to create a variable named addconfig with the value kvm and
build the default target. And BTW, you or someone else reassured me
earlier in the thread that this is going to be needed for the kvm case
solely, so why are you inventing something generic now? :)
