Only somewhat related to this patch, another problem that wasn't in your
doci is that the current O= support doesn't support relative paths.

For example, using O=/tmp/build-arm64 works, but O=build-arm64 doesn't.
Try this:

$ make ARCH=arm64 HOSTCC=gcc CROSS_COMPILE=aarch64-linux-gnu- O=build-arm64 defconfig
$ make ARCH=arm64 HOSTCC=gcc CROSS_COMPILE=aarch64-linux-gnu- O=build-arm64 kselftest-all
make[1]: Entering directory '/work/kernel/linux/build-arm64'
make --no-builtin-rules INSTALL_HDR_PATH=$BUILD/usr \
ARCH=arm64 -C ../../.. headers_install
make[4]: ../scripts/Makefile.build: No such file or directory
make[4]: *** No rule to make target '../scripts/Makefile.build'. Stop.
