kbuild: modules_install for external modules must not remove existing modules
When installing external modules with `make modules_install', the first thing that happens is a rm -rf of the target directory. This works only once, and breaks when installing more than one (set of) external module(s). With following fix we have the functionality: - for a in-kernel modules_install the $(MODLIB)/kernel directory will be deleted before module installation - for external modules the existing modules will be left as is assuming one may be building and installign several external modules Signed-off-by: Andreas Gruenbacher <agruen@suse.de> Signed-off-by: Sam Ravnborg <sam@ravnborg.org>
