Pull more Kbuild updates from Masahiro Yamada: - fix randconfig to generate a sane .config - rename hostprogs-y / always to hostprogs / always-y, which are more natual syntax. - optimize scripts/kallsyms - fix yes2modconfig and mod2yesconfig - make multiple directory targets ('make foo/ bar/') work * tag 'kbuild-v5.6-2' of git:// kbuild: make multiple directory targets work kconfig: Invalidate all symbols after changing to y or m. kallsyms: fix type of kallsyms_token_table[] scripts/kallsyms: change table to store (strcut sym_entry *) scripts/kallsyms: rename local variables in read_symbol() kbuild: rename hostprogs-y/always to hostprogs/always-y kbuild: fix the document to use extra-y for kconfig: fix broken dependency in randconfig-generated .config
