kbuild: all{no,yes,mod,def,rand}config only read files when instructed to.
Prevent subtle surprises to both people working on the kconfig code and people using make allnoconfig allyesconfig allmoconfig and randconfig by only attempting to read a config file if KCONFIG_ALLCONFIG is set. Common sense suggests attempting to read the extra config files does not make sense unless requested. The documentation says the code won't attempt to read the extra config files unless requested. Current usage does not appear to include people depending on the code reading the config files without the variable being set So do the simple thing and stop reading config files when passed all{no,yes,mod,def,rand}config unless KCONFIG_ALLCONFIG environment variable is set.
