+If NAME is not given, then it defaults to the same name as the LINUX package.
+Unless SOURCE is given the source of LINUX is used.
+A DEFCONFIG file to be used can be given as an origin, as a file-like object
+(file-append, local-file etc.), or as a string with the name of a defconfig 
+available in the Linux sources.  If DEFCONFIG is not given, then a defconfig
+file will be saved from the LINUX package configuration.
+Additional CONFIGS will be used to modify the given or saved defconfig, which
+will finally be used to build Linux.
+CONFIGS can be a list of strings, with one configuration per line.  The usual
+defconfig syntax has to be used, but there is a special extension to ease the
+removal of configurations.  Comment lines are supported as well.
+Here is an example:
+  '(;; This string defines the version tail in 'uname -r'.
+    \"CONFIG_LOCALVERSION=\\\"-handcrafted\\\"
+    ;; This '# CONFIG_... is not set' syntax has to match exactly!
+    \"# CONFIG_BOOT_CONFIG is not set\"
+    \"CONFIG_NFS_SWAP=y\"
+    ;; This is a multiline configuration:
+    \"CONFIG_E1000=y
+# This is a comment, below follows an extension to unset a configuration:
+A string of configurations instead of a list of configuration strings is also
+EXTRA-VERSION can be a string overwriting the EXTRAVERSION setting of the LINUX
+package, after being prepended by a hyphen.  It will be visible in the output
+of 'uname -r' behind the Linux version numbers."
