kbuild: remove 'make /' support
'make /' is just an alias for 'make ./'; this builds all objects of an external module, but skips the modpost stage. I am not a big fan of 'make /' since it looks as if it were touching the root directory of the system. I like 'make ./' better. I do not know how many people are using it, but let's show a hint if it is used. Also, move it close to the external module rules since this only makes sense for external modules.
