OSSTest doesn't set CONFIG_QEMU.

And looking at stubdom/Makefile, even if QEMU_ROOT is set to ".", the
end result is still correct.

347           ( $(buildmakevars2shellvars); \                                   
348             cd ioemu ; \                                                    
349             LWIPDIR=$(CURDIR)/lwip-$(XEN_TARGET_ARCH) \                     
350             TARGET_CPPFLAGS="$(TARGET_CPPFLAGS)" \                          
351             TARGET_CFLAGS="$(TARGET_CFLAGS)" \                              
352             TARGET_LDFLAGS="$(TARGET_LDFLAGS)" \                            
353             $(QEMU_ROOT)/xen-setup-stubdom )      

Also xen-setup-stubdom is tracked in that repository, not copied from
somewhere else. Probably worth checking what deleted it?

That said, I think this patch is correct and should be accepted as bug
fix, because it's doing what 8962a8f951e did.

Only one minor comment on the commit message, can you use short commit
hash with commit title instead of a URL to web git interface? Like

"In 8962a8f ("make: Normalize config options for external trees")
CONFIG_QEMU was replace by ..."
