I think this is a very good point.

I would go further than this, and wholesale import the relevant files
into a subdirectory in a single commit that contains nothing else, and
mention the specific git commit id and version number in the Linux
tree in the commit message.

Something like

  Import scripts/kconfig from Linux 4.2.0 commit id abcdefgh into our
  own xen/scripts/kconfig.  So far, these are unused - they will be
  wired into our own build system shortly.
