From: Rom Lemarchand <>

kbuild: make it possible to specify the module output dir

Make modinst_dir user-defined on the command line.

This allows to do things like:
make MODLIB=output/ modinst_dir=. modules_install

to ensure all the .ko are in the output/ directory.

This is one of the number of patches from the Android AOSP common.git tree,
which is used on Android devices. I wanted to submit it for review
to see if it should go upstream.
