[ Adding Jon Corbet to CC in case he has an opinion. ]

I think that paragraph in the admin guide seems a bit out of place,
because that file only seems to cover the most common cases.

No other env variables are described in that file (and some of the
previously existing env variables are much more likely to be used than
these new ones anyway).

It might be a good idea to instead just add a reference to kbuild.txt,
suggesting the user refer to that file if they want to learn more about
what env variables can be used to customize the build.
