hi all,
   Since the deadline of GSOC has passed, I would like to post my patch
about coreboot kconfig. Thanks to Marc who help me lots of things.
He told me lots of linux programming and coreboot building things. Also
thanks to QingPei, who helps me a lot about the detailed things. Like
the kconfig language learning, linux makefile rules etc.
The patch which i send is trying to make coreboot kconfig building can load
the payload configs and building payload like filo or coreinfo by one
The patch support two payload: Filo and coreinfo.
If devs want to use coreboot as before, it's fine, the patch support the old
method by use "make config/menuconfig/xconfig etc" and "make".
Anyone who want to try the new feature can use "make
config/menuconfig/xconfig PAYLOAD=filo/coreinfo" to config the
coreboot+payload at one time.
then use "make" to build the whole things.

I know there may have any improper methods. But the method used is the way i
can find. Any new method will be welcome. I will keep following  these
things, even
GSOC is end. More consideration will be posted to the coreboot blogs later.
