Current state of kconfig in v2.6.36-rc1 (which is a later version than
the one Jean-Christophe references) is the following:
- savedefconfig bugs fixed
- reading a minimal config (created by savedefconfig) fixed

The nconfig issues I mentioned regarding search are
not yet ready.
And I am not sure if they go in until next merge window.

Likewise there are patches in the works that will ease
the integration with external projects.
The patches does the following:
- Allows the prefix to be configured (CONFIG_ => BR2_)
- No more hardcoded "kernel" strings
- mainmenu in the config file is used as headline

These patches will go in during next merge window if they
are finished in due time.

So all-in-all I would recommend to use kconfig from
v2.6.36-rc1 (rather than some random commit) and
then upgrade again around v2.6.37-rc1 time.
