[PATCH v2 2/4] MIPS: zboot: Avoid useless rebuilds

From: Alban Bedel
Date: Sat Jan 23 2016 - 07:50:10 EST

dummy.o is missing from the targets list which cause useless rebuilds.
Instead of adding it to the target list we now fill the list
automatically from $(vmlinuzobjs) to avoid having to maintain two

Building with XZ compression also lead to useless rebuilds because it
reuse source files from another directory. The kernel and zboot
wrapper use different flags, so if these object are built for the
kernel, they then get overwritten by the zboot wrapper version.
In the next build these object files are missing for the kernel,
so they get rebuild again, and then again for the zboot wrapper. To
solve this we copy the source files to the build directory to avoid
overwritting the kernel objects.

v2: * Properly delete the copied source files on clean
* Rewrote the commit log to better explain the problem
