linux: clarify kernel configuration entries
Since BR2_LINUX_KERNEL_CUSTOM_CONFIG_FILE can either be a complete .config file or a defconfig file, it can be confusing to the user whether to choose BR2_LINUX_KERNEL_USE_DEFCONFIG or BR2_LINUX_KERNEL_USE_CUSTOM_CONFIG. To avoid that confusion, clarify Kconfig entry messages for in-tree defconfig and custom (def)config files. Signed-off-by: Vivien Didelot <vivien.didelot@savoirfairelinux.com> Acked-by: "Yann E. MORIN" <yann.morin.1998@free.fr> Signed-off-by: Thomas Petazzoni <thomas.petazzoni@free-electrons.com>
