What I missed is u-boot overlay, as you and Andy alluded. I added

Sorry, I never tried that approach.

As far as I know uboot (usually virtual/bootloader) does not have a task to
run menuconfig directly from bitbake.
I usually have a local clone of uboot and I simply run `make [...]
menuconfig|savedefconfig` , then I create a patch
to add my defconfig (custom_defconfig) to configs/ and specify
UBOOT_MACHINE = "custom_defconfig"

Thank you.
