      kconfig: reference environment variables directly and remove 'option env=' · 104daea1
      Masahiro Yamada authored
      To get access to environment variables, Kconfig needs to define a
      symbol using "option env=" syntax.  It is tedious to add a symbol entry
      for each environment variable given that we need to define much more
      such as 'CC', 'AS', 'srctree' etc. to evaluate the compiler capability
      in Kconfig.
      
      Adding '$' for symbol references is grammatically inconsistent.
      Looking at the code, the symbols prefixed with 'S' are expanded by:
       - conf_expand_value()
         This is used to expand 'arch/$ARCH/defconfig' and 'defconfig_list'
       - sym_expand_string_value()
         This is used to expand strings in 'source' and 'mainmenu'
      
      All of them are fixed values independent of user configuration.  So,
      they can be changed into the direct expansion instead of symbols.
      
      This change makes the code much cleaner.  The bounce symbols 'SRCARCH',
      'ARCH', 'SUBARCH', 'KERNELVERSION' are gone.
      
      sym_init() hard-coding 'UNAME_RELEASE' is also gone.  'UNAME_RELEASE'
      should be replaced with an environment variable.
      
      ARCH_DEFCONFIG is a normal symbol, so it should be simply referenced
      without '$' prefix.
      
      The new syntax is addicted by Make.  The variable reference needs
      parentheses, like $(FOO), but you can omit them for single-letter
      variables, like $F.  Yet, in Makefiles, people tend to use the
      parenthetical form for consistency / clarification.
      
      At this moment, only the environment variable is supported, but I will
      extend the concept of 'variable' later on.
      
      The variables are expanded in the lexer so we can simplify the token
      handling on the parser side.
      
      For example, the following code works.
      
      [Example code]
      
        config MY_TOOLCHAIN_LIST
                string
                default "My tools: CC=$(CC), AS=$(AS), CPP=$(CPP)"
      
      [Result]
      
        $ make -s alldefconfig && tail -n 1 .config
        CONFIG_MY_TOOLCHAIN_LIST="My tools: CC=gcc, AS=as, CPP=gcc -E"
