    Changes from core-10.

    Redo the passing of kbuild variables to $(shell) commands.

    Require make 3.79.1 for kbuild 2.5.

    The make 'export' command does not export the variables to $(shell)
    commands, which makes it messy when those commands need to access the
    variables. The workaround for this was a bit hackish and a core-10
    change broke with common source and object.

    core-11 uses a new method of passing the kbuild variables to $(shell)
    commands. It is cleaner, but it requires features that are not
    available in make 3.77. make 3.78 should work but since 3.79.1 has
    been out for almost two years and is being used by any recent
    distribution, the code says that make 3.79.1 is required for kbuild

    An update to 2.5/Documentation/Changes has been submitted. Linus has
    already done 2.5 changes that require make 3.79 features, the Changes
    update is overdue.
