Nice clean up. But there's some bugs in this patch.

When prvalue ne "bisect" we set it to boot or more.

Here you set it back to build.

Here too.

In fact, with this patch, we never set to boot or more.

Also, you can make it even cleaner, by having the outer if condition be:

	if ($laststep <= STEP_INSTALL && $prvalue ne "build")

And remove the prvalue check from the inner conditions.

Just send a fix of this patch, I have already pulled in the other two.
I just need to test them for a bit before I push them to my kernel.org
repo. I don't actually have a test suite for ktest. My testing is that
I use ktest on a daily basis, and I just use the latest devel ktest for
my daily activities. If something breaks, I usually notice, unless it's
affects something I haven't done recently (like a bisect).

Thanks,
