kbuild: fix spurious initramfs rebuild
When gen_initramfs_list is used to generate make dependencies, it includes symbolic links, for which make tracks the link target. Any change to that target will cause an initramfs rebuild, even if the symlink points to something outside of the initramfs directory. If the target happens to be /tmp, the rebuild occurs for each kernel build, since gen_initramfs_list uses mktemp... Proposed way to fix it is to omit symbolic links from generated dependencies, but this has a small drawback: changing perm/owner on a symlink will go unnoticed.
