Subject[PATCH] kbuild: honor HOSTCFLAGS and HOSTLDFLAGS in libelf test
Since commit 596a9f6768af ("objtool: Support HOSTCFLAGS and HOSTLDFLAGS")
objtool can use a libelf installed in a non-standard location by
passing in appropriate HOST flags.

The libelf check in the main Makefile is done without these flags
and fails if no libelf is installed on the system.

Fix this by adding HOSTCFLAGS and HOSTLDFLAGS to the libelf check.
