All the $(shell ...) calls are pointless.


$(shell echo "hello" > Symbols.list)

is equivalent to

echo "hello" > Symbols.list

This does not correctly detect the command change of cmd_klp_convert.


I cleaned up the build system, and pushed it based on my
kbuild tree.

Please see:

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/masahiroy/linux-kbuild.git
klp-cleanup


Thanks.
