the  Kconfig files  are used  by the "make menuconfig"  to show the menu 
options to build the .config file.

After a few tests   ii found several Kconfig files ( at least   
arch/arm/Kconfig ,   drivers/usb/Kconfig   and drivers/mmc/Kconfig ) 
must to be patched.

To workaround it.... I modified  the script files  to   skip the   
checks  of the .config  file  by the scripts/kconfig/conf  tool.

Also is needed apply this patch to get the kernel starts to compile

but finally the compilation fails because the file  
arch/arm/mach-sun4i/pin/sys_config_verify_ddr3.bin   is missing.

And now I'm stucked at this point.

Any ideas?
