The documented way to build kselftest is to run

    make -C tools/testing/selftests

with an optional "O=..." parameter to specify the output directory.

However, all of the above assume you run make from the source directory.
while other make commands can simply be run from the output directory,
too (the autogenerated Makefile in the output directory takes care of

Add a "kselftest-build" target, so "make kselftest-build" can be used
from either the source or output directory.

Signed-off-by: Geert Uytterhoeven <geert+renesas@glider.be>
Perhaps this make target should just be called "kselftest", and the
existing "kselftest" target be renamed to "kselftest-run"?
