[RFC] First pass config fragment breakout for linaro kernel

So after talking about it at the last Linaro Connect, I've finally
gotten around to making a first pass at providing config fragments for
the linaro kernel. I'd like to propose merging this for 12.04, and
doing so early so we can make sure that all the desired config options
are present in the fragments and to allow the vairous linaro build
systems to begin migrating their config generation over.
The current tree is here:
The most relevant commit being:
This includes config fragments for a linaro-base, an android-ization
fragment, and board configs for panda, origen and imx53.
I suspect we'll need an ubuntu specific fragment as well as all the
other board fragments.
There is likely to be quite a bit of churn as we decide what sort of
configs are really common and which are board specific. But that's ok.
Configs are generated from the config fragments, as follows:
./scripts/kconfig/merge_config.sh ./configs/linaro-base.conf ./configs/android.conf ./configs/panda.conf
You may see warnings, which are not fatal, but should be reported so
they can be properly cleaned up.
I'm asking for Build folks to take a look at the above and consider how
they might merge in fragment assembly into their system replacing their
current config generation.
I'd ask Landing teams to take a look at this, and report any missing
config options or fragment chunks they'd like to see.
