[PATCH v2 4/6] kbuild: create object directories simpler and faster




For the out-of-tree build, scripts/Makefile.build creates output
directories, but this operation is not efficient.

scripts/Makefile.lib calculates obj-dirs as follows:

  obj-dirs := $(dir $(multi-objs) $(obj-y))

Please notice $(sort ...) is not used here.  Usually the result is
as many "./" as objects here.

For a lot of duplicated paths, the following command is invoked.

  _dummy := $(foreach d,$(obj-dirs), $(shell [ -d $(d) ] || mkdir -p $(d)))

Then, the costly shell command is run over and over again.

I see many points for optimization:

[1] Use $(sort ...) to cut down duplicated paths before passing them
    to system call
[2] Use single $(shell ...) instead of repeating it with $(foreach ...)
    This will reduce forking.
[3] We can calculate obj-dirs more simply.  Most of objects are already
    accumulated in $(targets).  So, $(dir $(targets)) is fine and more
    comprehensive.

I also removed ugly code in arch/x86/entry/vdso/Makefile.  This is now
really unnecessary.

Changes in v2:
  - Complete "host-objdirs" removal
  - Remove (obj) from mkdir argument per Cao
