+Environment variables
+
+KCPPFLAGS
+--------------------------------------------------
+Additional options to pass when preprocessing. The preprocessing options
+will be used in all cases where kbuild do preprocessing including
+building C files and assembler files.
+
+KAFLAGS
+--------------------------------------------------
+Additional options to the assembler.
+
+KCFLAGS
+--------------------------------------------------
+Additional options to the C compiler.
+
+KBUILD_VERBOSE
+--------------------------------------------------
+Set the kbuild verbosity. Can be assinged same values as "V=...".
+See make help for the full list.
+Setting "V=..." takes precedence over KBUILD_VERBOSE.
+
+KBUILD_EXTMOD
+--------------------------------------------------
+Set the directory to look for the kernel source when building external
+modules.
+The directory can be specified in several ways:
+1) Use "M=..." on the command line
+2) Environmnet variable KBUILD_EXTMOD
+3) Environmnet variable SUBDIRS
+The possibilities are listed in the order they take precedence.
+Using "M=..." will always override the others.
+
+KBUILD_OUTPUT
+--------------------------------------------------
+Specify the output directory when building the kernel.
+The output directory can also be specificed using "O=...".
+Setting "O=..." takes precedence over KBUILD_OUTPUT
+
+ARCH
+--------------------------------------------------
+Set ARCH to the architecture to be built.
+In most cases the name of the architecture is the same as the
+directory name found in the arch/ directory.
+But some architectures suach as x86 and sparc has aliases.
+x86: i386 for 32 bit, x86_64 for 64 bit
+sparc: sparc for 32 bit, sparc64 for 64 bit
+
+CROSS_COMPILE
+--------------------------------------------------
+Specify an optional fixed part of the binutils filename.
+CROSS_COMPILE can be a part of the filename or the full path.
+
+CROSS_COMPILE is also used for ccache is some setups.
+
+CF
+--------------------------------------------------
+Additional options for sparse.
+CF is often used on the command-line like this:
+
+ make CF=-Wbitwise C=2
+
+INSTALL_PATH
+--------------------------------------------------
+INSTALL_PATH specifies where to place the updated kernel and system map
+images. Default is /boot, but you can set it to other values
+
+
+MODLIB
+--------------------------------------------------
+Specify where to install modules.
+The default value is:
+
+ $(INSTALL_MOD_PATH)/lib/modules/$(KERNELRELEASE)
+
+The value can be overridden in which case the default value is ignored.
+
+INSTALL_MOD_PATH
+--------------------------------------------------
+INSTALL_MOD_PATH specifies a prefix to MODLIB for module directory
+relocations required by build roots. This is not defined in the
+makefile but the argument can be passed to make if needed.
+
+INSTALL_MOD_STRIP
+--------------------------------------------------
+INSTALL_MOD_STRIP, if defined, will cause modules to be
+stripped after they are installed. If INSTALL_MOD_STRIP is '1', then
+the default option --strip-debug will be used. Otherwise,
+INSTALL_MOD_STRIP will used as the options to the strip command.
+
+INSTALL_FW_PATH
+--------------------------------------------------
+INSTALL_FW_PATH specify where to install the firmware blobs.
+The default value is:
+
+ $(INSTALL_MOD_PATH)/lib/firmware
+
+The value can be overridden in which case the default value is ignored.
+
+INSTALL_HDR_PATH
+--------------------------------------------------
+INSTALL_HDR_PATH specify where to install user space headers when
+executing "make headers_*".
+The default value is:
+
+ $(objtree)/usr
+
+$(objtree) is the directory where output files are saved.
+The output directory is often set using "O=..." on the commandline.
+
+The value can be overridden in which case the default value is ignored.
+
+KBUILD_MODPOST_WARN
+--------------------------------------------------
+KBUILD_MODPOST_WARN can be set to avoid error out in case of undefined
+symbols in the final module linking stage.
+
+KBUILD_MODPOST_FINAL
+--------------------------------------------------
+KBUILD_MODPOST_NOFINAL can be set to skip the final link of modules.
+This is solely usefull to speed up test compiles.
+
+KBUILD_EXTRA_SYMBOLS
+--------------------------------------------------
+For modules use symbols from another modules.
+See more details in modules.txt.
