Me neither. The problem is, I need to grep the config that goes into
the "oldconfig" *before* scripts/kconfig/conf gets a hold of it and
satisfies deps and thus turns off CONFIG_MICROCODE in the process. This
is a simpler solution short of hacking scripts/kconfig/conf and it can
be used for other stuff we might need in arch/x86/

Yes, I'll update the patch.

This one is funny. Makefile's help says:

silentoldconfig - Same as oldconfig, but quietly, additionally update deps

and yet doing

$ make silentoldconfig

is not very silent and goes through all new prompts asking me about them.

Regarding this issue, yes, I'll add its name to the script too.

Sure, once we agree on the approach.
