SubjectRe: [PATCH 15/19] Kbuild: add Rust support

I implemented both because I saw the pattern used for `V=`, `W=` etc.,
and I thought I should follow it too. If I understand correctly, the
split between `KBUILD_*` and the shorthands is there to avoid
conflicts if the caller had set very short environment variables for
some reason -- is this correct?

If you prefer only one, I think writing `KBUILD_CLIPPY=1` would be too
long for command line usage; so I would prefer `CLIPPY=1` in that

I have moved it inside the `rust/Makefile` -- please take a look at
the next round I am sending in a bit.

Thanks for the reference! Changed to `always-y`. Indeed, this is
needed in `make modules` because we need to trigger the compilation of
`core.o` etc. for the `.rmeta` files.

It was needed at some point for the prototype more than a year ago;
however, it isn't the case anymore, so I have removed it. I have also
made those variables simply expanded ones.
