Subject[PATCH] MIPS: remove a space after -I to cope with header search paths for VDSO
Commit 9cc342f6c4a0 ("treewide: prefix header search paths with
$(srctree)/") caused a build error for MIPS VDSO.

CC arch/mips/vdso/gettimeofday.o
In file included from ../arch/mips/vdso/vdso.h:26,
from ../arch/mips/vdso/gettimeofday.c:11:
../arch/mips/include/asm/page.h:12:10: fatal error: spaces.h: No such file or directory
#include <spaces.h>

The cause of the error is a missing space after the compiler flag -I .

Kbuild used to have a global restriction "no space after -I", but
commit 48f6e3cf5bc6 ("kbuild: do not drop -I without parameter") got
rid of it. Having a space after -I is no longer a big deal as far as
Kbuild is concerned.

It is still a big deal for MIPS because arch/mips/vdso/Makefile
filters the header search paths, like this:

ccflags-vdso := \
$(filter -I%,$(KBUILD_CFLAGS)) \

..., which relies on the assumption that there is no space after -I .

Fixes: 9cc342f6c4a0 ("treewide: prefix header search paths with $(srctree)/")
