This doesn't seem used anywhere?

As mentioned in the other email, we lose the error reporting. Now the
lack of plugins is just a silent =n in menuconfig. Keeping
--show-error in the Kconfig call and retaining stderr would be nice.

I need to do some further testing with SANCOV, but otherwise this all
looks correct, and my testing shows it behaving correctly.
