    Randy Dunlap reports UML occasionally fails to build with -j<N> and
    O=<builddir> options.

      Makefile:146: recipe for target 'sub-make' failed
      make: *** [sub-make] Error 2
    The cause of the problem is the use of '$(MAKE) KBUILD_SRC=',
    which recurses to the top Makefile via the $(objtree)/Makefile
    generated by scripts/mkmakefile.
    When you run "make -j<N> O=<builddir> ARCH=um", Make can execute
    'archheaders' and 'outputmakefile' targets simultaneously because
    there is no dependency between them.
    If it happens,
      $(Q)$(MAKE) KBUILD_SRC= ARCH=$(HEADER_ARCH) archheaders
    ... tries to run $(objtree)/Makefile that is being updated.
    The correct way for the recursion is
      $(Q)$(MAKE) -f $(srctree)/Makefile ARCH=$(HEADER_ARCH) archheaders
    ..., which does not rely on the generated Makefile.
