Description Aleksandr Rybalko 2010-04-14 12:40:01 UTC
I made a patch for the config utility, which enables execution of config outside of the kernel source tree.
The main purpose is to avoid large number of configuration files for many boards.
I work on D-Link DIR-320 device (Broadcom BCM5354) which must have more than 4 different profiles with different kernel
config files.
If every device have 3-5 configs (with different hints files), every chip have ~ 5-10 vendors (producing devices on this chip),
every chip family have 10-20 chips (BCM5354 is a BCM4700 family), and platform have 10-20 family's, so we get 40000 files in conf
directory of platform

Fix: Patch attached with submission follows:
