With the meta-build, it's always a NO_CLEAN build. However, there's time
you want to blow away the build and try again. 'cleankernel' will delete
the kernel and modules object directories.

Looks ok to me. Is this intended to be an internal target, or should cleankernel be documented with other targets at the beginning of the top-level Makefile? I see that cleanworld isn't documented either.
I'm unsure. I followed the 'cleanworld' lead for that. I'm not sure why that's not documented at the top either. I think it should be both or neither. It's a developer target, but there's a lot of developer targets documented.
Hmm, cleanworld is documented in build.7 though, so perhaps that's a better place to document this anyway. (And a follow-up could just replace the makefile comment with a pointer to build.7.)
