allowing -save-temps when building the kernel

I find -save-temps useful to help debug problems with the preprocessor.

I don't see a good way to add this to a linux build...

Also, it conflicts with -pipe (pipe takes precedence).

This is wrt 2.0.33:

make PIPE=-save-temps

did exactly what I wanted.
