Several scripts assume that this exact format is used for disabled config:
"# CONFIG_FOO is not set" (same as in the kernel).

While your patch works [probably because these scripts are not run when
using the ImageBuilder], it seems cleaner to stick to the standard format,
e.g. in case a .config file is copied around from an imagebuilder.
