[PATCH 2/2] kbuild: redefine __FILE__ as relative path from $(srctree) if possible

Since Kbuild runs in the objtree, __FILE__ can be a very long path
depending of $(srctree).

Commit 9da0763bdd82 ("kbuild: Use relative path when building in a
subdir of the source tree") made the situation better for cases where
objtree is a child of srctree.  ($(srctree) is "..")

For other cases of out-of-tree build, filenames in WARN_ON() etc. are
still an absolute path.  It also means the kernel image depends on
where it was built.

Here, the idea is to redefine __FILE__ as the relative path from
$(srctree), but doing so causes a compiler warning:
  warning: "__FILE__" redefined [-Wbuiltin-macro-redefined]

The option -Wno-builtin-macro-redefined can suppress it, but it is
only recognized by GCC 4.4 or newer.  Re-define __FILE__ only when

Please note __FILE__ is always an absolute path for external modules.
