[RFC PATCH 1/2] kbuild: add KBUILD_FILE to point relative file path from $(srctree)

Since Kbuild runs in the objtree, __FILE__ can be a very long path
depending of $(srctree).

Commit 9da0763bdd82 ("kbuild: Use relative path when building in a
subdir of the source tree") made the situation better for cases
where objtree is a child of srctree.  ($(srctree) is "..")

For other cases of out-of-tree build, filenames in WARN_ON() etc.
are still an absolute path.  It also means the kernel image depends
on where it was built.

Here, the idea is to define a new macro, KBUILD_FILE, to point the
relative file path from $(srctree).

If we replace __FILE__ with KBUILD_FILE, we can rip off the path
to the build directory.

I am adding stringify helper because '"..."' wrapping is the same
pattern for KBUILD_BASENAME, KBUILD_MODNAME, and KBUILD_FILE.

Please note KBUILD_FILE is still an absolute path for external
modules.  We can strip KBUILD_EXTMOD from the path if we want,
but I am not doing that.  It would make it difficult to figure out
the module in question in case of WARN_ON().
