And now you are removing autotools and replace that by Kconfig. I don't
think that this is a good idea, especially when things make further
progress and there will be modules with external dependencies.

Are you sure you took care of things like out-of-tree builds and cross
compilation in a clean environment?

All experience from packaging > 600 tools for ptxdist shows, that any
package that tries to be smarter than autotools and invent their own
build system didn't take care of many important things.
