    x86: fix make mrproper
    Michael Opdenacker reported:
    For backward compatibility with earlier (< 2.6.24) kernels,
    arch/i386/boot/bzImage or arch/x86_64/boot/bzImage symbolic links to
    arch/x86/boot/bzImage are created when you build an x86 kernel. The
    arch/i386 or arch/x86_64 directories are then created for this only
    Issue: these generated directories and symbolic links are *not cleaned
    up* when you run "make mrproper" (and thus "make distclean"). This
    disturbs the production of patches, because the source tree is left with
    generated files and directories.
    Sam has an alternative fix:
    The directory is killed during make clean as opposed to make mrproper.
