KBUILD_ENABLE_EXTRA_GCC_CHECKS started as a switch to add extra warning options for GCC, but now it is a historical misnomer since we use it also for Clang, DTC, and even kernel-doc. Rename it to more sensible, shorter KBUILD_EXTRA_WARN. For the backward compatibility, KBUILD_ENABLE_EXTRA_GCC_CHECKS is still supported (but not advertised in the documentation). I also fixed up 'make help', and updated the documentation.
