Subject[PATCH 1/3] kbuild: provide a new place to check necessary host tools
Date
Enabling CONFIG options often requires additional features, like
target compiler capabilities, host tools, etc.

As for the target compiler capabilities, Kconfig is able to add
proper dependencies. For example,

config STACKPROTECTOR
...
depends on $(cc-option,-fstack-protector)

The CONFIG option is simply disabled if unsupported by the compiler.
This seems sensible since otherwise, there is no way to avoid the
build error.

In the discussion [1], doing similar for host tools was unacceptable.
Build errors caused by missing host tools are easy to fix; just
install them to your build machine. So, let the build fail instead
of disabling CONFIG options silently.

We already have such checks in random places in makefiles. What I
do not like is that people tend to do that in the top Makefile.

The top Makefile is too cluttered, and what is worse, $(error ...)
functions in the top Makefile could be false positive. (Please note
the top Makefile includes the stale include/config/auto.conf before
syncconfig updates it.)

This adds a new file scripts/Makefile.toolcheck to check additional
tools depending on the kernel configuration. This check is run
immediately after syncconfig, i.e., when a user attempts to build
something with a new set of CONFIG options.
