Subject[PATCH v2 0/3] kbuild: fix host progs build with libs in non standard locations
This patchset allows to build host programs that depend on external libs
installed in non standard locations (i.e. not in /usr/include, /usr/lib,
etc.). For now, the only way is to force HOSTCC to include both the
path to the host compiler and the build flags.

I have encountered this issue when building linux into the buildroot
framework. host-* versions of libs may be compiled and installed in a
host staging dir removing the need to install them on the build system.

I'm not really satisfied with the new HOST_{C,LD}FLAGS variables. They
are too similar to HOST{C,LD}FLAGS and I find them confusing. However,
HOST_EXTRA*FLAGS are already reserved for local use in makefiles (see
Documentation/kbuild/makefiles.txt). And I didn't want to have even
longer USER_HOST_*FLAGS. If someone has a better proposition, I'll
happily make a v3.

Comments are welcome.

Changes since v1:
- Fix typos.
- Do not use HOST_EXTRA*FLAGS. Add new user specifiable variables.
- Pass HOSTLDFLAGS to build single .c programs.
- Build objtool with host flags.

Robin Jarry (3):
kbuild: introduce HOST_{C,LD}FLAGS
kbuild: use HOSTLDFLAGS for single .c executables
objtool: use global host flags for compilation
