kbuild: fix interaction of CONFIG_IKCONFIG and KCONFIG_CONFIG

If you try to build a kernel with KCONFIG_CONFIG set (to a value
not equal to .config) and that config sets CONFIG_IKCONFIG then the
build will fail with:

make[1]: *** No rule to make target `.config', needed by \
`kernel/config_data.gz'.  Stop.

because the kernel/Makefile contains a direct reference to .config.

This issue has been present since the introduction of KCONFIG_CONFIG
in 14cdd3c4.
