Subject: [PATCH v2] kbuild: ensure mrproper removes arch/$(SUBARCH)/include/generated/

In the following use case, when compiling the kernel for the UML
architecture, for example:

 * `make ARCH=um defconfig && make ARCH=um -j8`,

SUBARCH files are generated, however when we run the command:

 * `mrproper ARCH=um`

the files `arch/$(SUBARCH)/include/generated/ aren't cleaned up.

This generates compilation errors by running the following command:

 * `make ARCH=um defconfig O=./build_um && make ARCH=um -j8 O=./build_um`

This PATCH fix that problem.

This makes it possible to compile on different architectures that use the
SUBARCH variable, in different build directories and root directory of the
linux directory. This is important because we can compile without the object
files being overwritten. This reduces the re-compilation time in this use case.

Besides that, in the workflow of developing unit tests, using kunit, and
compiling in different architectures to develop or test a PATCH, this use case

 * This bug was introduced in this commit a788b2ed81abe
