kbuild: clarify where to run make mrproper when out-of-tree fails
If you try out-of-tree build with an unclean source tree, Kbuild suggests to run make mrproper. The path to the source tree may be shown with a relative path, for example, "make O=foo" emits the following: .. is not clean, please run 'make mrproper' in the '..' directory. This is somewhat confusing if you ran "make O=foo" in the source tree. Using the absolute path will be clearer. This commit changes the error message like follows: *** *** The source tree is not clean, please run 'make mrproper' *** in /absolute/path/to/linux *** Signed-off-by: Masahiro Yamada <yamada.masahiro@socionext.com>
