Kbuild will assume the directories to be in the same relative path as the
Makefile if no absolute path is specified (path does not start with '/').
+To exclude certain files from make clean, use the $(no-clean-files) variable.
+This is only a special case used in the top level Kbuild file:
+
+ Example:
+ #Kbuild
+ no-clean-files := $(bounds-file) $(offsets-file)
+
Usually kbuild descends down in subdirectories due to "obj-* := dir/",
but in the architecture makefiles where the kbuild infrastructure
is not sufficient this sometimes needs to be explicit.
