Actually, this no longer works reliably. For example, when I run

ARCH=powerpc make oldconfig

with our ppc64le config on x86_64 system, I get different result than
when I run it on an actual ppc64le system (or when using a ppc64le cross
compiler on x86_64).

Since .config started to mix user configuration and build environment
capabilities, maintaining distribution configs became real pain. And
it's getting progressively worse.
