Subject[PATCH] kbuild: shrink Makefile cache when it exceeds 1000 lines
Date
The cache files are only cleaned away by "make clean".  If you continue
incremental builds, the cache files will grow up little by little.
It is not a big deal in general use cases because $(call cc-option,...)
in not added/deleted quite often.

However, if you do build-test for various architectures, compilers, and
kernel configurations, you will end up with huge cache files soon.

The simple idea is to cut down the cache when it exceeds a certain
limit. I wrote a simple method to check if nr_cache >= 1000.
If it is, shrink it by "tail -500". This is not LRU strategy, but I
hope it will work well enough.
