Commit d3fc425e819b ("kbuild: make sure autoksyms.h exists early")
moved the code that touches autoksyms.h to scripts/kconfig/Makefile
with obscure reason.

From Nicolas' comment [1], he did not seem to be sure about the root

I guess I figured it out, so here is a fix-up I think is more correct.
According to the error log in the original post [2], the build failed
in scripts/mod/devicetable-offsets.c

scripts/mod/Makefile is descended from scripts/Makefile, which is
invoked from the top-level Makefile by the 'scripts' target.

To build vmlinux and/or modules, Kbuild descend into $(vmlinux-dirs).
This depends on 'prepare' and 'scripts' as follows:

  $(vmlinux-dirs): prepare scripts

Because there is no dependency between 'prepare' and 'scripts', the
parallel building can run them simultaneously.

'prepare' depends on 'prepare1', which touched autoksyms.h, whereas
'scripts' descends into script/, then scripts/mod/, which needs
<generated/autoksyms.h> if CONFIG_TRIM_UNUSED_KSYMS.  It was the
reason of the race.

I am not happy to have unrelated code in the Kconfig Makefile, so
getting it back to the top Makefile.

I removed the standalone test target because I want to use it to
create an empty autoksyms.h file.  Here is a little improvement;
unnecessary autoksyms.h is not created when CONFIG_TRIM_UNUSED_KSYMS
is disabled.
