    Subject[PATCH v5 5/5] tools: Connect to the kernel build system
    Date
    From: Borislav Petkov <borislav.petkov@amd.com>

    Now you can do

    $ make tools/<toolname>

    from the toplevel kernel directory and have the respective tool built.

    If you want to build and install it, do

    $ make tools/<toolname>_install

    $ make tools/<toolname>_clean

    should clean the respective tool directories.

    If you want to clean all in tools, simply do

    $ make tools/clean

    Also, if you want to get what the possible targets are, simply calling

    $ make tools/

    should give you the short help.

    $ make tools/install

    installs all tools, of course. Doh.
