kbuild: Do not overwrite makefile as anohter user
Change the conditional of the outputmakefile rule to be evaluated entirely in make, and add a conditional to not touch the generated makefile when e.g. running 'make install' as root while the build was done as non-root. Also adjust the comment describing this, and move the message printing and redirection to mkmakefile. Signed-off-by: Jan Beulich <jbeulich@novell.com> Signed-off-by: Sam Ravnborg <sam@ravnborg.org>
