[coreboot] [PATCH]Remove race condition opportunity in cbfstool build

Better approach as solving the race condition: As we handle cbfstool as
special subdirectory, like Kconfig, create $(obj)/util/cbfstool the same
way $(obj)/util/kconfig is done.

Why is this better? dependencies on directories are "always rebuild", as
the directory gets a new timestamp once a file in it is touched. We
don't need to rebuild cbfstool all the time.
