Okay, so we cannot drop autoconf.h inclusion. That also means that we
need some other way to expand embedded variables in CONFIG_HAB* Kconfig
options. The problem is that autoconf.h overwrites (redefines) all
macros specified at command line.

This will also result in autoconf.h redefining macros specified at
command line, but only for that board (because of explicit "include
<generated/autoconf.h>"). Problem will surface once again when someone
will start using HAB for that board.

Maybe we should expand all macros from autoconf.h? For example process
autoconf.h *somehow* and produce autoconf-expanded.h, which we could use
with "-include" option. This is just an idea, I do not know how to
implement that. Any other ideas?
