[ Upstream commit 13d3d01e26b942ada7cfced68ccb6db49597874a ]

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

    UPD     include/config/kernel.release
  make[1]: *** wait: No child processes.  Stop.
  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.
