Will the file generated always work? What are the current
restrictions on kconfig variable names?

This is done later so this description does not belong here.
You want to describe what this patch does alone, if it has
potential for the future just mention basics, and that will will
be done later.

This should note be a note, it should be an important aspect of
your changes -- you should try to describe when a direct mapping
is possible and when it is not.

You can leave this out.

You can leave this out.

This is nice for experimentation, however as you note we want
to evaluate a better way to do this. While at it, can you describe
what algorithm currently is used by scripts/kconfig/streamline_config.pl
to collect %objects and the associated CONFIG symbol ? Can you think
of possible flaws to it ?

The generation here is also forced, we want to enable this to be optional
so please consider adding a Kconfig entry for this as a feature, just as
the module versioning stuff has one.
