Subject: [PATCH] kbuild: reuse vmlinux.o in vmlinux_link

Instead of linking all compilation units again each time vmlinux_link is
called, reuse vmlinux.o from modpost_link.

With x86_64 allyesconfig, vmlinux_link is called three times and reusing
vmlinux.o reduces the build time ~38 seconds on my system (59% reduction
in the time spent in vmlinux_link).
