For somebody wondering why the current code works
for out-of-tree building.


Kbuild sets VPATH
(https://github.com/torvalds/linux/blob/master/Makefile#L208)


So, Make searches for pre-requisites in both objtree and srctree
when building out-of-tree.

VPATH does not work for recipe lines.
So, we need to specify the exact path to streamline_config.pl
