This looks like it would cover defconfig files too, but the initial
motivation is config fragments.  See
for another example.

I've asked a few people to look in to this because we have a lot of
cases today of N _defconfig files where we could really instead have 1
_defconfig file and N config fragment files.  But I do not want them
living in the top level configs directory as that will get even more

What's not in this patch (and not an ask at this point) is figuring out
how buildman could handle "foo_defconfig bar.config" as the required
config target.
