What I am trying to do is to build kernel **and** user mode components
under tools/testing/selftests/ktf and to keep the kernel test code out
of the tree. The only way I was able to do this was by means of the module build,
eg. 'make TARGETS="ktf" kselftest' will cause a toplevel 'make M=tools/testing/selftests/ktf'
which is what builds the lot. One can argue that this is a misuse of that mechanism,
but as I argue in the cover letter, I think there is a need to make it possible
to have kernel code that is not going to be part of the installed kernel
somewhere else than in the normal build path of the kernel, which is what
I am trying to achieve.

The toplevel Makefile logic for this is in patch 17 of the series in
tools/testing/selftests/ktf/Makefile
and for ktf/kernel/Makefile and ktf/lib/Makefile and ktf/user/Makefile
in patches 2, 12 and 16 respectively.

It is a bit of a hack still, since the hostcxxprogs-y and hostcxxlib-y
targets in ktf/user and ktf/lib do not get invoked "automatically"
from __build like the obj-m targets. I haven't been able to figure out
yet how to achieve that, and was hoping I could get help on it :-)

Thanks!
