That's an interesting request.  There isn't really a way to separate
them this way since the configuration control script is used to divide
the LHA7A400 implementation of the ARM920 from the Samsung

I've rewritten the generation script using text tools.  It is
attached.  It uses the preprocessor to generate the list of #defines,
so I think that it better matches your expectations.

# Generate a configuration file to control building

# select which source files to compile and link.
# Here, we select configuration entries of the form:
#  #define CONFIG_XXX 1
# where XXX is an enabled configuration option.
# About CPP
# ---------
# The macro CPP may refer to 'gcc -E'.  This definition is not
# compatible with this use of the preprocessor because the input file
# is a header and not a source file.  Should there be a dependency on
# a target-specific macro, another method must be found.
