'config' changes: overriding "maxusers" when including another kernel configuration

In the past, when one created a kernel configuration that includes another
kernel configuration, one could override the value of "maxusers" simply
by using the "maxusers" keyword with the desired value.

With the recent changes to 'config' and/or various Makefile*s, this
no longer works.  The config step fails stating that MAXUSERS=N
(the value of "maxusers" from the included configuration) already

I've found the following to work, e.g.:

  include 	"arch/sparc/conf/GENERIC"
  no options 	MAXUSERS
  options 	MAXUSERS=8

Will this be the new way of things, or will the old behavior of simply
giving a new "maxusers" statement be restored?
