kbuild: really fix bzImage build with non-bash sh
In an x86 build with CONFIG_KERNEL_LZMA enabled and dash as sh, arch/x86/boot/compressed/vmlinux.bin.lzma ends with '\xf0\x7d\x39\x00' (16 bytes) instead of the 4 bytes intended and the resulting vmlinuz fails to boot. This improves on the previous behavior, in which the file contained the characters '-ne ' as well, but not by much. Previous commits replaced "echo -ne" first with "/bin/echo -ne", then "printf" in the hope of improving portability, but none of these commands is guaranteed to support hexadecimal escapes on POSIX systems. So use the shell to convert from hexadecimal to octal. With this change, an LZMA-compressed kernel built with dash as sh boots correctly again.
