[PATCH] kbuild: compile-test global headers to ensure they are self-contained

I made a quick hack on top of your patch to demonstrate
the ideas.
See patch below.

When all header files below include/drm are self-contained it will be a
single line:

    header-test-y += $(all_headers_with_subdir)

But for now I skipped the subdirs as they was not in too good shape.

My gmake foo escapted me tonight, so $(call all_headers_with_subdir)
did not really do what I wanted. Which is why I use the macro direct.
The main part is that we have support in the generic part to find the
header files and to filter out header files we do not want to check.

Later we may extend the checking to something more than that they
can build. We could check for CONFIG_ symbols in uapi/ and more.

Another note. Maybe we should name the files Kbuild, as this is what we
usually do in include/*

But I also sometimes regret that I introduced this second name.
Back then the idea was to globally rename Makefile => Kbuild.
But I never advocated this, as the pain was much bigger than the gain.
Another thing to be cleaned up one day maybe...
