Subject: [PATCH] kbuild: improve libelf detection

When `pkg-config --libs' wasn't used or didn't return anything useful,
the test for libelf would fail even if the headers and libraries were
available to kbuild via KBUILD_HOSTCFLAGS and KBUILD_HOSTLDFLAGS.

This makes the check in the core Makefile match the check that is done
in tools/objtool/Makefile. Specifically, the C compiler is passed the
full KBUILD_HOSTCFLAGS and KBUILD_HOSTLDFLAGS, which may have set up
additional sysroot/include/library search paths to find libelf.
