Updated version of kconfig has always been a challenge.
One of the pain points is figuring out how to do this well
and what files / Makefile lines to edit. Part of this is
because we don't carry all the kernel's helpers on our kconfig
helper. The other aspect which makes it hard is figuring out
adjustments of missing files, renames, and updates to things to
make things compile.

Yep. When refreshing the integration mode patches[1] I went through the following process:

1) Realize kconfig changes are needed
2) Check if Luis' patches were merged
3) Decide to pull in new kconfig changes manually just to get unblocked
4) Wonder which kconfig files are actually needed.

The kconfig git subtree effort aims at helping with this. It
figures all the above out for you and all we need to do is just
declare where we keep the kconfig data on, and then include a
Makefile from the git subtree code into our project. That's it.

So, from my point of view this seems like a fine change.
