[XEN PATCH v5 00/16] xen: Build system improvements

Patch series available in this git branch:

- few changes detailed in patch notes.
- 1 new patch

- some patch already applied.
- Have added patches from "xen/arm: Configure early printk via Kconfig" series.
- Some new patch to add documentation or fix issues, and patch to improve
  compat header generation.
Other changes are detailed in patches.

- new patches that do some cleanup or fix issues
- have rework most patches, to have better commit message or change the coding
  style, or fix issues that I've seen. There were some cases where CFLAGS were
  See patch notes for details
- introduce if_changed*. That plenty of new patches on top of what we had in v2.
  (those changes ignore CONFIG_LTO=y, I'll see about fixing that later)

(There is more to come in order to use fixdep from Linux, but that's not ready)


I have work toward building Xen (the hypervisor) with Linux's build system,

The main reason for that is to be able to have out-of-tree build. It's annoying
when a build fail because of the pvshim. Other benefit is a much faster
rebuild, and `make clean` doesn't take ages, and better dependencies to figure
out what needs to be rebuild.

So, we are not there yet, but the series already contain quite a few
improvement and cleanup. More patches are going to be added to the series.
