.gitignore: prefix local generated files with a slash

The pattern prefixed with '/' matches files in the same directory,
but not ones in sub-directories.

initramfs: refactor the initramfs build rules

Currently, usr/gen_initramfs.sh takes care of all the use-cases:

[1] generates a cpio file unless CONFIG_INITRAMFS_SOURCE points to
a single cpio archive

[2] If CONFIG_INITRAMFS_SOURCE is the path to a cpio archive,
use it as-is.

[3] Compress the cpio file according to CONFIG_INITRAMFS_COMPRESSION_*
unless it is passed a compressed archive.

To simplify the script, move [2] and [3] to usr/Makefile.

If CONFIG_INITRAMFS_SOURCE is the path to a cpio archive, there is
no need to run this shell script.

For the cpio archive compression, you can re-use the rules from
scripts/Makefile.lib .

kbuild: compile-test exported headers to ensure they are self-contained

Multiple people have suggested compile-testing UAPI headers to ensure
they can be really included from user-space. "make headers_check" is
obviously not enough to catch bugs, and we often leak unresolved
references to user-space.

Use the new header-test-y syntax to implement it. Please note exported
headers are compile-tested with a completely different set of compiler
flags. The header search path is set to $(objtree)/usr/include since
exported headers should not include unexported ones.

We use -std=gnu89 for the kernel space since the kernel code highly
depends on GNU extensions. On the other hand, UAPI headers should be
written in more standardized C, so they are compiled with -std=c90.
This will emit errors if C++ style comments, the keyword 'inline', etc.
are used. Please use C style comments (/* ... */), '__inline__', etc.
in UAPI headers.

There is additional compiler requirement to enable this test because
many of UAPI headers include <stdlib.h>, <sys/ioctl.h>, <sys/time.h>,
etc. directly or indirectly. You cannot use kernel.org pre-built
toolchains [1] since they lack <stdlib.h>.

I reused CONFIG_CC_CAN_LINK to check the system header availability.
The intention is slightly different, but a compiler that can link
userspace programs provide system headers.

For now, a lot of headers need to be excluded because they cannot
be compiled standalone, but this is a good start point.

.gitignore update

headers_install by default puts headers into usr/include/ .
They're auto-generated, so should be ignored.

Same for *.orig, *.rej .

Add some basic .gitignore files

This still leaves driver and architecture-specific subdirectories alone,
but gets rid of the bulk of the "generic" generated files that we should
ignore.
