To generate .config from bcm2835_defconfig:

CROSS_COMPILE=whatever make ARCH=arm bcm2835_defconfig

To edit .config to add/remove the options you want:

CROSS_COMPILE=whatever make ARCH=arm menuconfig
(or there are other options)

To re-generate bcm2835_defconfig:

CROSS_COMPILE=whatever make ARCH=arm savedefconfig
mv defconfig arch/arm/configs/bcm2835_defconfig
# git diff ...
