Subject: Re: [PATCH] scripts/package/Makefile: put proper config in source


> It is widely known that one can build a kernel without a .config in the
> source tree by setting KCONFIG_CONFIG equal to the actual configuration
> file path.

> When making a *-pkg target, make(1) prepares a source tarball and tries
> to pack `.config' in there regardless of the value of KCONFIG_CONFIG,
> failing spectacularly if .config is absent and packing the wrong config
> if it exists.
> Let's fix that.
