package: add helper functions to get package name and directory magically
This commit adds the functions "pkgname" and "pkgdir", which can then be used to automatically find the name of the package and the directory of the package which does the call to GENTARGETS/AUTOTARGETS/CMAKETARGETS. These functions use the $(MAKEFILE_LIST) variable, which make automatically makes available, and which contains the list of included Makefiles, with the current Makefile being last. Thanks to this variable and a little bit of string manipulation, we can easily find out automatically the package name and the directory it is part of. These functions are used in later commits to simplify the GENTARGETS, AUTOTARGETS and CMAKETARGETS calls. [Peter: Rename to pkgmakefile->pkgdir, pkgdir->pkgparentdir as that's what it is] Signed-off-by: Thomas Petazzoni <thomas.petazzoni@free-electrons.com> Signed-off-by: Peter Korsgaard <jacmet@sunsite.dk>
