See also 2a7cf511f4 (linux: split calling "all" and "$(LINUX_TARGET_NAME)"
targets) which is an attempt at fixing the regression in ffbe46a5295c.

Furthermore, there were a few patches adding host uboot tools to a few
defconfigs that needed it, like 7cbf9c63e5 (configs/qemu_ppc_virtex_ml507:
kernel build needs mkimage)

Finally, see also the discussion on that series:
    http://lists.busybox.net/pipermail/buildroot/2019-April/248424.html

We may have missed a few. I'll send a patch adding it to the extensa
defconfigs.

Regards,
Yann E. MORIN.
