    kbuild: announce removal of SUBDIRS if used · 0126be38
    Masahiro Yamada authored
    SUBDIRS has been kept as a backward compatibility since
    commit ("[PATCH] kbuild: external module support") in 2002.
    
    We do not need multiple ways to do the same thing, so I will remove
    SUBDIRS after the Linux 5.3 release. I cleaned up in-tree code, and
    updated the document so that nobody would try to use it.
    
    Meanwhile, display the following warning if SUBDIRS is used.
    
    Makefile:189: ================= WARNING ================
    Makefile:190: 'SUBDIRS' will be removed after Linux 5.3
    Makefile:191: Please use 'M=' or 'KBUILD_EXTMOD' instead
    Makefile:192: ==========================================
