Take dma as an example.  You need to take care of three different config
files.  So you need to have either three default files or one big
default file for dma.  Now take the next piece of software ...

The discussion is not really new:
The mechanism Matt describes in his posting is IMO quite nice.  We could
have some logic in a Makefile to do a merge and we're done.
