scripts/package: add KBUILD_PKG_ROOTCMD variable
Let the deb-pkg target acquire (fake) root privileges before running commands that need them. Without such privileges, deb-pkg errors out because chown fails. The new KBUILD_PKG_ROOTCMD variable, if defined, is used as a command to run other commands with possibly fake elevated privileges. Since this is not needed for the tar-pkg and rpm-pkg targets, it is only used by deb-pkg. If it is not defined, the behavior is as before, and the user will have to rerun make as root. In other words, as a shortcut, instead of running 'make oldconfig && make && fakeroot -u make deb-pkg', one can use the single command 'make oldconfig deb-pkg KBUILD_PKG_ROOTCMD="fakeroot -u"'.
