Subject[PATCH v2 1/3] scripts/package/Makefile: put proper config in source tarball
It is widely known that one can build a kernel without a .config in the
source tree by setting KCONFIG_CONFIG equal to the actual configuration
file path.

When making a *-pkg target, make(1) prepares a source tarball and tries
to pack `.config' in there regardless of the value of KCONFIG_CONFIG,
failing spectacularly if .config is absent and packing the wrong config
if it exists.
Let's fix that by including whatever KCONFIG_CONFIG points to in the
archive under the traditional name `.config'.

We have to pass --absolute-names to tar, since it seems to trim the
paths of archive members first and only then consider --transform, which
breaks KCONFIG_CONFIG=../../some.config, as well as absolute paths.
