Documentation/kconfig: more concise and straightforward search explanation
Re-phrase the explanations on the sorting of search results, in a more concise and complete way. Drop reference to the user's locale when sorting alphabetically, since this is implicit.

When searching, symbols are sorted thus:
- - exact match first: an exact match is when the search matches
- the complete symbol name;
- - alphabetical order: when two symbols do not match exactly,
- they are sorted in alphabetical order (in the user's current
- locale).
+ - first, exact matches, sorted alphabetically (an exact match
+ is when the search matches the complete symbol name);
+ - then, other matches, sorted alphabetically.
For example: ^ATH.K matches:
ATH5K ATH9K ATH5K_AHB ATH5K_DEBUG [...] ATH6KL ATH6KL_DEBUG
[...] ATH9K_AHB ATH9K_BTCOEX_SUPPORT ATH9K_COMMON [...]
