This omits system header files from the generated header dependency.

System headers are not updated unless you upgrade the compiler. Nor do
they contain CONFIG options, so fixdep does not need to parse them.

Having said that, the effect of this optimization will be small because
the kernel code generally does not include system headers except

Host programs include a lot of system headers, but there are not so
many host programs.

Theoretically, fixdep does not need to parse *.d files for host programs
because host programs should not contain CONFIG options in the first
place. Kbuild re-uses if_changed_dep for host programs, though I do not
think it is a big deal.

At first, keeping system headers in .*.cmd files might be useful to
detect the compiler update, but there is no guarantee that <stdarg.h>
is included from every file. So, I implemented a more reliable way in
the previous commit.
