This patch will add "make debug_info" to split debuginfo files. The
separate debug files are under debug directory of building tree.

It is based on two considerations:
   * The debuginfo extracting machinery could be integrated into the
     kbuild system. This way it's not just done via RPM macros. So
     generating debuginfo RPMS or something alike can be simplified
     and standardized, also distribution independent.
   * Reduce the size of current file which mixes executable and
     debug sections. For example, 7% off for vmlinux.
