kbuild, deb-pkg: allow alternative hook scripts directory in .deb packages
Hook scripts in the default directory /etc/kernel are also executed by official Debian kernel packages as well as kernel packages created using make-kpkg. Allow to specify an alternative hook scripts directory by exporting the environment variable KDEB_HOOKDIR.
