Actually, I just realized something: does this actually do the right
thing if both tiny.config files exist? The documentation for
KCONFIG_ALLCONFIG doesn't suggest that it can take two files as
arguments. And if it can, this also need quotes; otherwise, this will
expand to "... allnoconfig KCONFIG=path/to/a/tiny.config
another/path/to/a/tiny.config".
