Yes. It still can't. But the tree is not something the user should
configure. Its a hardware description. The motherboard support
developer should do this.
We already have this seperation, although we did not dare doing it right
last time: Config.lb and Options.lb in the mainboard directory.
Config.lb should be Tree.lb and contain nothing but the tree. It is not
Options.lb should contain the default values for the configuration
options (ie the "Kconfig" file for the kconfig mechanism)
The target configuration file is .config in kconfig speak.
