Subject[PATCH] kconfig: Add script
After noticing almost every distro has their own method of managing
config fragments, I went looking at some best practices, and wanted
to try to consolidate some of the different approaches so this fairly
simple infrastructure can be shared (and new distros/build systems
don't have to implement yet another config fragment merge script).

This script is most influenced by the Windriver tools used in
the Yocto Project, reusing some portions found there.

This script merges multiple config fragments, warning on any
overrided values. It then sets any unspecified values to their
default, then finally checks to make sure no specified value was
dropped due to unsatisfied dependencies.

I'm sure I'm sure this implementation won't work for everyone, and
I expect it will need to evolve to adapt for various use cases.
But I think its a reasonable starting point.

v2: Reworked to use alldefconfig instead of the proposed
olddefconfig as suggested by Sam Ravnborg.

Thanks to Darren Hart for early review and feedback!

Please let me know if you have any comments or thoughts!
