When merging configuration fragments, it might be of interest to
identify mismatches (redefinitions) programmatically. Hence add the
option -s (strict mode) to instruct merge_config.sh to bail out in
case any redefinition has been detected.

With strict mode, warnings are emitted as before, but the script
terminates with rc=1. If -y is set to define "builtin having
precedence over modules", fragments are still allowed to set =m (while
the base config has =y). Strict mode will tolerate that as demotions
from =y to =m are ignored when setting -y.

Simply because I hate this script.


merge_config.sh itself is a bad hack.
I do not like to extend it further.

Not only this one.
I saw more people with
"hey, I came up with a new option for merge_config.sh"
to do whatever they like to do.

However, it might be too late anyway.

So, I can merge this patch if people believe
it is useful.

I do not know why merge_config was implemented as
a separate shell script while all the other
functions were contained in the kconfig binary.

Anyway...

OK, I decided to not care about it too much.

Now applied to linux-kbuild. Thanks.
