kbuild: make modpost processing configurable
On request from Al Viro make modpost processing configurable. KBUILD_MODPOST_WARN can be set to make modpost warn instead of error out in case on unresolved symbols in final module link. KBUILD_MODPOST_NOFINAL can be set to avoid the final and timeconsuming .c file generation and link of .ko files. This is solely useful for speeding up when doing compile checks with for example allmodconfig Signed-off-by: Sam Ravnborg <sam@ravnborg.org>
