doc: use KCFLAGS instead of EXTRA_CFLAGS to pass flags from command line
You should use KCFLAGS to pass additional compiler flags from the command line. Using EXTRA_CFLAGS is wrong. EXTRA_CFLAGS is supposed to specify flags applied only to the current Makefile (and now deprecated in favor of ccflags-y). It is still used in arch/mips/kvm/Makefile (and possibly in external modules too). Passing EXTRA_CFLAGS from the command line overwrites it and breaks the build. I also fixed drivers/gpu/drm/tilcdc/Makefile because commit 816175dd1fd7 ("drivers/gpu/drm/tilcdc: Makefile, only -Werror when no -W* in EXTRA_CFLAGS") was based on the same misunderstanding.
