Khem noticed that he was seeing frequent "modpost missing" messages in his
logs for out of tree builds. This is due to the missing kernel scripts, which
we remove for packaging reasons.

Rather than jiggle the kernel install rule itself, experience shows that just
heading to the sysroot and re-creating the scripts is easy enough to do.

   [PATCH 1/1] kernel: restore scripts in the sysroot

   When building against the sysroot, out of tree modules can require modpost
   and other utilities normally found in the kernel's scripts directory. For
   the kernel source in the staging dir, these scripts have been removed to
   avoid mixing archiectures when packaging kernel-dev (among other things).

   Rather than further complicate the kernel's install rule, or its packaging,
   we can jump into the sysroot and restore the scripts by building them, hence
   making them available to packages that need them.

Khem confirmed that the same fix worked for him.
