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
a config.

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.
