I did not think about this case. Any idea of what would be better ? Not
installing kernel when running "make install-nodev" ? Creating 
install-nokernel and install-nokernel-nodev targets ?

prepare-kernel should be executed whenever any file or directory is
added in the ksrc and include dirs. On my own machine, prepare-kernel is
much shorter than the kernel build. So, I did not see this as an issue,
but I am ready to accept any better solution. Maybe it could depend on
maintainer mode ? Since the user-space will work automatically when
adding a file or directory only if maintainer mode is enabled.
