I have been offline for a while - but found some time this weekend
to do some kbuild work.
This is the patches that has accumulated in kbuild-next so far.

I have almost everything applied that I had queued up.
So if there is something missing assume I deleted it by mistake
and resend it to me.

I have a number of patches sitting in my local trees but
I need to look over them once more before they are ready
for public review.
This is mostly related to generated headers and simplfied scripts (Tim is eagerly await this...).

Patches will follow.
