No, there _is_ a "good reason", but it is simply "hysterical raisins".

All scripting used to be done in Makefiles, for the simple reason that
GNU make supported all those shell escapes. The Kconfig language did
not.

The whole "shell escape in Kconfig" is relatively recent, and so we
still have old code (and people) used to the build-time makefile rules
rather than those newfangled Kconfig things.

Of course "relatively recent" is about two years by now. It's not like
we did it yesterday.

Anyway, your conversion patches look fine to me. I'm obviously not
taking them for 5.6, but if they go into -next and get some testing,
I'd love to have that cleanup in 5.7.
