I like the idea, but the script should create .tree and tree.h (like
.config and config.h) that can be included by the Makefile and the code.
Actually running the produced stuff through Kconfig is wrong, because it
has nothing to do with user configuration. Instead both Kconfig and the
tree parser should produce similar output for the data each of them
