Karmic Kernel Config Rework

Registered by Andy Whitcroft on 2009-06-12

Spawned as a separate task from the karmic kernel configuration review. The kernel configuration is currently entirly independent between architectures. This makes it easy to fail to carry changes say for security improvements over to all of the architectures. It would be better to have a more sophisticated mechanism for specifying the config. We should evaluate the config overrides system used in debian at least.
