    Simplify "make ARCH=x86" and fix kconfig so we again can set 64BIT in
    all.config.
    
    For a fix the diffstat is nice:
     6 files changed, 3 insertions(+), 36 deletions(-)
    
    The patch reverts these commits:
     - 0f855aa6 ("kconfig: add helper to set
       config symbol from environment variable")
     - 2a113281 ("kconfig: use $K64BIT to
       set 64BIT with all*config targets")
    
    Roman Zippel pointed out that kconfig supported string compares so
    the additional complexity introduced by the above two patches were
    not needed.
    
    With this patch we have following behaviour:
    
      # make {allno,allyes,allmod,rand}config [ARCH=...]
      option \ host arch      | 32bit         | 64bit
      =====================================================
      ./.                     | 32bit         | 64bit
      ARCH=x86                | 32bit         | 32bit
      ARCH=i386               | 32bit         | 32bit
      ARCH=x86_64             | 64bit         | 64bit
    
    The general rule are that ARCH= and native architecture takes
    precedence over the configuration.
    
    So make ARCH=i386 [whatever] will always build a 32-bit kernel
    no matter what the configuration says.  The configuration will
    be updated to 32-bit if it was configured to 64-bit and the
    other way around.
    
    This behaviour is consistent with previous behaviour so no
    suprises here.
    
    make ARCH=x86 will per default result in a 32-bit kernel but as
    the only ARCH= value x86 allow the user to select between 32-bit
    and 64-bit using menuconfig.
