kbuild: add ./Kbuild file to fix "make clean"
"make clean/mrproper/distclean" has not been working correctly. When "make clean" is run, Kbuild descends into the directories that are listed in "clean-dirs" variable, which includes $(srctree). It intends descending into "./Kbuild", not "./Makefile". (Note "Kbuild" takes precedence over "Makefile" in each directory.) If Kbuild descends into "./Makefile", Kconfig is invoked via "make silentoldconfig", which is not our intention. Let's add "Kbuild" file at the top directory like Linux. Update TODO list too.
