Subject: Announce: kernel meta config tool

Hi folks,

I'd like to announce a little tool for helping w/ creating .config's:

I often have to spend lots of time to find out which configs to enable
on a specific board, to get certain features (eg. network, sata,
display, gpu, ...). Even worse: many options require other stuff enabled
before even showing up. And when disabling unneeded stuff, it leaves
lots of other things enabled. (we don't have some `apt autoremove`
kconfig counterpart :().

I've decided to cope w/ that on a higher level and written a little
config generator tool for that - here you can enable high level
features (eg. 'network' or 'display', etc) and it will generate the
actual .config:

*MAYBE* this could become a good alternative to defconfig's ?

have fun.
