No, this is not possible for now.
I have thought about a few ways of doing this.
What I plan to look at is something where the local Kconfig
file is read along with the .config for the kernel.
The user will then anly be allowed to tweak config symbols
defined for the external module, the kernel paramerets are not
visible, and cannot be modified.

But this requires some kconfig tweaking, and first priority is
to get the basic funtionality working so all (most) people
are happy with it.

If anyone has better ideas for handling Kconfig files for external
modules please tell so.
