Peter Maydell - Sept. 13, 2013, 2:19 p.m.
Add new logical functions for handling y/n values like those we
use in CONFIG_FOO variables:
 lnot : logical NOT
 land : logical AND
 lor : logical OR
 eq : equality
 ne : non-equality
 lif : like Make's $(if) but with an eq-like test

and a couple of utility functions:
 isempty : true if argument is empty
 notempty : true if argument is not empty

Based on an idea by Ákos Kovács <akoskovacs@gmx.com>.
