kbuild: warn if always, hostprogs-y, or hostprogs-m is used
always, hostprogs-y, and hostprogs-m are deprecated. There is no user in upstream code, but I will keep them for external modules. I want to remove them entirely someday. Prompt downstream users for the migration. Signed-off-by: Masahiro Yamada <>
