Subject[PATCH] make rpmbin...

The attached patch implements a 'make rpmbin' rule which, as its
name implies, generates a binary-only RPM using the current
(already compiled) tree.

I find this rule to be much more useful when hacking a part of the
code, then doing 'make bzImage rpmbin' or 'make modules rpmbin',
instead of compiling the whole tree again in a different place
like 'make rpm' does.

Do the audience find this useful ? Comments ?
