Subject[PATCH] kbuild: add Map option to save vmlinux linker map file(s)
Add "Map" kbuild option, so that "make Map=1" would save vmlinux linker
map into vmlinux.map, which is quite useful during making kernel changes
related to how the kernel is composed.

KBUILD_SAVE_LINK_MAP flag is exported and architectures
supporting compressed kernel images might respect it and produce
arch/*/boot/compressed/vmlinux.map for the decompressor code as well.
