Run 'make headers_check' when building vmlinux found in lib/Kconfig.debug

Help text

This option will extract the user-visible kernel headers whenever building the kernel, and will run basic sanity checks on them to ensure that exported files do not attempt to include files which were not exported, etc.

If you're making modifications to header files which are relevant for userspace, say 'Y', and check the headers exported to $(INSTALL_HDR_PATH) (usually 'usr/include' in your build tree), to make sure they're suitable.
