Adding filechk2 function  that has the same semantics
as filechk, but it takes the target file from the 2nd
argument instead of from the '$@' as in the filechk
function.

This function is needed when we can't have separate
target for the file, like in the following patch.

+# filechk2 is used to check if the content of a generated file is updated.
+# It follows the same logic as the filechk except instead of the $@ target
+# variable, the checked file is passed in 2nd argument.
+#
+# Sample usage:
+# define filechk_sample
+#	echo $KERNELRELEASE
+# endef
+# version.h : Makefile
+#	$(call filechk2,sample,version.h)
+# endef
+define filechk2

+	if [ -r $(2) ] && cmp -s $(2) $(2).tmp; then	\
