[PATCH 0/2] make deb-pkg build speed improvements

From: Chris J Arges
Date: Fri Apr 24 2015 - 14:25:58 EST

These two patches should speed up the make deb-pkg build process by utilizing
the make jobserver properly, and using 'find | xargs' to parallelize debug
module installation.

I've tested with the resulting packages to ensure the symbols work as intended
by crash dumping a machine and using the dbg package symbols.

Using an Ubuntu distro conf + make olddefconfig on a 56-core machine, I can see
the following improvements (make clean && make deb-pkg -j`nproc`):

* Before

real 40m56.240s
user 182m17.292s
sys 140m18.812s

* After

real 36m22.633s
user 182m28.028s
sys 148m17.724s
