kbuild: kselftest - new make target to build and run kernel selftests
Add a new make target "kselftest" to enable kernel testing. This new target builds and runs kernel selftests. Running as root is recommended for a complete test run as some tests don't run when run by non-root user. Build, install, and boot kernel before running kselftest on it.
