Change formatting so that it's more consistent and readable, add/modify
comments/stdout messages, move configuration options to more appropriate
places and make the order consistent according to these rules:
1. First list generic configuration options, then list options that may
   be overwritten. List SoC-specific options last.
2. For SoC-specific options, list number of cores before the number of
   NUMA nodes, to make it consistent with config/meson.build.
