kbuild: create a way to create preprocessor constants from C expressions

The use of enums create constants that are not available to the preprocessor
when building the kernel (f.e.  MAX_NR_ZONES).

Arch code already has a way to export constants calculated to the preprocessor
through the asm-offsets.c file.  Generate something similar for the core
kernel through kbuild.
