To get an environment value, Kconfig needs to define a symbol using
"option env=" syntax.  It is tedious to add a config entry for each
environment given that we need more environments such as 'CC', 'AS',
'srctree' etc. to evaluate the compiler capability in Kconfig.

Adding '$' to symbols is weird.  Kconfig can reference symbols directly
like this:

  config FOO
          string
          default BAR

So, I want to use the following syntax to get environment 'BAR' from
the system:

  config FOO
          string
          default $BAR

Looking at the code, the symbols prefixed with 'S' are expanded by:
 - conf_expand_value()
   This is used to expand 'arch/$ARCH/defconfig' and 'defconfig_list'
 - expand_string_value()
   This is used to expand strings in 'source' and 'mainmenu'

All of them are independent of user configuration, i.e. fixed values.
So, this kind of syntax should be moved to simply take the environment.

This change makes the code much cleaner.  The bounce symbols 'SRCARCH',
'ARCH', 'SUBARCH', 'KERNELVERSION' are gone.

sym_init() hard-coding 'UNAME_RELEASE' is also gone.  'UNAME_RELEASE'
should be be given from the environment.

ARCH_DEFCONFIG is a normal symbol, so it should be simply referenced
by 'default ARCH_DEFCONFIG'.

An environment can appear anywhere a symbol reference can appear.
(It is expanded by sym_lookup().)  If an expression (which is derived
from symbols) is a string, environments in the string are also expanded.

For example, the following code works.

Example code:

  config TOOLCHAIN_LIST
          string
          default "My tools: CC=$CC, AS=$AS, CPP=$CPP"

Result:

  $ make -s alldefconfig && tail -n 1 .config
  CONFIG_TOOLCHAIN_LIST="My tools: CC=gcc, AS=as, CPP=gcc -E"

I tested all 'make *config' for arch architectures.
I confirmed this commit still produced the same result.

I like this idea. These bounce symbols always seemed kinda pointless to
me too (and I've seen some other Kconfig dialects that got rid of them).

Getting rid of those symbols also gets rid of the only case where
Kconfig would previously evaluate Kconfig symbols during parsing (for
'source "$ENV"'), so it makes the parsing/evaluation separation a bit
cleaner.


I wonder if we could just make the quotes mandatory though, and treat
$BAR simply as string interpolation, similar to the idea in
https://lkml.org/lkml/2018/2/17/175.

That would make the behavior clearer I think, and you wouldn't have to
do special parsing for symbols starting with $ (but see the note at the
end).

With the idea above, this would just be

	def_bool "$ARCH" = "sh"

instead.

Decrease T_OPT_ALLNOCONFIG_Y to 3 as well? Looks like a bitmask to me
otherwise.

Another option if we want to allow $ENV outside of quotes (even though I
prefer mandatory quotes) would be to transform it early into "$ENV" by
returning a T_WORD_QUOTE token for it.

I think you could then get expand_string_value() to handle both the
quoted and unquoted cases.

Cheers,
Ulf
