Do you have a specific example? What I've seen so far (especially cris was
full of it), was more used to override the user (and only worked with
'make oldconfig' anyway). Only because most users want to include specific
drivers, doesn't mean all users have to include these drivers. I'm a bit
afraid such a feature would be easily misused.
It sounds more like you want an autoconf, which generates a machine
specific config. E.g. ppc already delivers several config files for
different machines, which are selected with 'make <mach>_config'. Going
into this direction sounds like a better idea.
