tools: Connect to the kernel build system
Now you can do $ make tools/<toolname> from the toplevel kernel directory and have the respective tool built. If you want to build and install it, do $ make tools/<toolname>_install $ make tools/<toolname>_clean should clean the respective tool directories. If you want to clean all in tools, simply do $ make tools/clean Also, if you want to get what the possible targets are, simply calling $ make tools/ should give you the short help. $ make tools/install installs all tools, of course. Doh.
