Hi Joe and Josh,

Thanks for the quick feedback, I'll be looking forward for your comments
once you have the change to dig deeper :). I'll apply all typo-fixes,
add klpclean to the PHONY targets and change the quiet_cmd invocation as
suggested in v2.

Tbh, I never had tried it before, so I just emulated the process and it
was simple and successful. All it required in addition to what is
regular, was the introduction of the "LIVEPATCH_($bastarget).o := y"
into the Makefile. All else was implicitly handled by Kbuild.

Best,
Joao
