[dpdk-dev] [PATCH] mk: pass CROSS_COMPILE when compiling kernel modules

Pass CROSS_COMPILE to the kernel build system when compiling kernel
modules. Although we export CC etc. the top level kernel Makefile will
override the environment. As a result it will end up using wrong tools
if cross-compilation is desired but CROSS_COMPILE is not set.
