I believe that the one you're looking for to modify is in
project_build_arm/*/linux-* . I find that when I've modified files
in there (it's been several months since I've had to do that), I've
needed to do a

   pushd project_build_arm/*/linux-*
   make clean

To make sure that the kernel gets rebuilt properly, but there's a good
chance that since I've last played with this the dependency checking
stuff has gotten better.

You shouldn't have to extract any files manually, Buildroot should do
that for you. And if you do a "make menuconfig" at the highest level,
you can then go to "Kernel->Linux Kernel Configuration", that should be
the equivalent of just typing "make linux26-menuconfig" directly.
