    Pull Kbuild updates from Masahiro Yamada:
     "One of the most remarkable improvements in this cycle is, Kbuild is
      now able to cache the result of shell commands. Some variables are
      expensive to compute, for example, $(call cc-option,...) invokes the
      compiler. It is not efficient to redo this computation every time,
      even when we are not actually building anything. Kbuild creates a
      hidden file ".cache.mk" that contains invoked shell commands and their
      results. The speed-up should be noticeable.
       - Fix arch build issues (hexagon, sh)
       - Clean up various Makefiles and scripts
       - Fix wrong usage of {CFLAGS,LDFLAGS}_MODULE in arch Makefiles
       - Cache variables that are expensive to compute
       - Improve cc-ldopton and ld-option for Clang
       - Optimize output directory creation"
