So what's the meaning of

ifeq (0,$(MAKELEVEL))
ifeq ($(OUTPUT),)
OUTPUT := $(shell pwd)

Of course we can do this, but the "O=/path/to/mydir" only has effect on
header install, the *.o files still generated in kvm/ directory.

And kvm's INSTALL_HDR_PATH cannot find the right headers.

That's why I choose to use "OUTPUT=/somewhere"

I guess "kernel srcdir" means "kselftest srcdir", i.e.,
tools/testing/selftests/ ?

Well, as I said in the first place, I tried

make O=/path/to/mydir TARGETS=kvm

but it doesn't work. So I did some fixup, and sent out the Patches.

If the patches are wrong, please point it out and give your comments how
to make it right.

This command also has the x86_64 directory not created issue.
Since it generates header files in kernel_src/usr/include, it doesn't
have headers path issue. But as result, the kernel_src directory is not
clean, this requires me to run "make mrproper", I *really* don't like it.
