When building an external module, if users don't need to separate the
compilation output and source code, they run the following command:
"make -C $(LINUX_SRC_DIR) M=$(PWD)". At this point, "$(KBUILD_EXTMOD)"
and "$(src)" are the same.

If they need to separate them, they run "make -C $(KERNEL_SRC_DIR)
O=$(KERNEL_OUT_DIR) M=$(OUT_DIR) src=$(PWD)". Before running the
command, they need to copy "Kbuild" or "Makefile" to "$(OUT_DIR)" to
prevent compilation failure.

So the kernel should change the included path to avoid the copy operation.

I do not think "M=$(OUT_DIR) src=$(PWD)" is the official way,
but this patch is a clean up.

Applied to linux-kbuild. Thanks.
