Bug 877308 - Change when build backend update check it performed; r=glandium Before, we checked if config.status was stale in any entrant Makefile (top level or child directory). This had undesirable side-effects for partial tree builds, notably that if the build backend was out of date, the current Makefile was invalidated. With this patch, we only regenerate the build config automatically in full/toplevel builds. If an outdated build config is detected on partial tree builds, we error. The impact of this is mitigated by having mach build automatically ensure the build config is current.

# To Trigger a clobber replace ALL of the textual description below,
# giving a bug number and a one line description of why a clobber is
# required. Modifying this file will make configure check that a
# clobber has been performed before the build can continue.
# MERGE NOTE: When merging two branches that require a CLOBBER, you should
#             merge both CLOBBER descriptions, to ensure that users on
#             both branches correctly see the clobber warning.
