Fix kernel build instructions

Kernel build right now is all sorts of silly.

Sadly, many embedded dev kits are not able to boot mainline Linux kernels but often ship with either an evil vendor source tree or just an evil vendor binary. As long as the evil vendor's kernel is newer than the headers we install, that'll be OK.

But how exactly does one instruct someone to build a kernel for an embedded board? Since there's so many damn choices in menuconfig that really do matter, let alone device tree.

Would a viable path be to build for a QEMU target but say, "Do it like this, just for your board."?
