Subject: [tip: x86/build] x86/build: Use $(CONFIG_SHELL)

The following commit has been merged into the x86/build branch of tip:

x86/build: Use $(CONFIG_SHELL)

When scripts/ doesn't have the executable bit set:

  q:/usr/src/25> make clean
  make: execvp: ./scripts/ Permission denied

Fix this by using $(CONFIG_SHELL).

This will happen if the user downloads and applies patch-5.7.tar.gz, since
patch(1) doesn't preserve the x bit.
