If the kernel headers aren't installed we can't build all the tests.
Add a new make target rule 'khdr' in the file lib.mk to generate the
kernel headers and that gets include for every test-dir Makefile that
includes lib.mk If the testdir in turn have its own sub-dirs the
top_srcdir needs to be set to the linux-rootdir to be able to generate
the kernel headers.

Can you elaborate on the error in BPF you're seeing that would force a
headers_install for it? Some people are running the tools/ infrastructure
(incl. BPF kselftests) outside of kernel tree where this dependency would
break their setup. Why BPF bits cannot be fixed otherwise?

Thanks,
Daniel

BPF shouldn't be affected, a new revision of the patch does not touch
the bpf/Makefile.
I will send out a patch soon.
