kbuild: fix building with O=.. options
The check introduced in commit: 4f1127e204377cbd2a56d112d323466f668e8334 "kbuild: fix infinite make recursion" caused certain external modules not to build and also caused 'make targz-pkg' to fail. This is a minimal fix so we revert to previous behaviour - but we do not overwrite the Makefile in the top-level directory.
