    kbuild: revert $(realpath ...) to $(shell cd ... && /bin/pwd) · 028568d8

    I thought commit 8e9b4667 ("kbuild: use $(abspath ...) instead of
    $(shell cd ... && /bin/pwd)") was a safe conversion, but it changed
    the behavior.
    $(abspath ...) / $(realpath ...) does not expand shell special
    characters, such as '~'.
    Here is a simple Makefile example:
      $(info /bin/pwd: $(shell cd ~/; /bin/pwd))
      $(info abspath: $(abspath ~/))
      $(info realpath: $(realpath ~/))
      $ make
      /bin/pwd: /home/masahiro
      abspath: /home/masahiro/workspace/~
    This can be a real problem if 'make O=~/foo' is invoked from another
    Makefile or primitive shell like dash.
    This commit partially reverts 8e9b4667.
    Fixes: 8e9b4667
