    Ok I see it in 2.3.16 as well, net/econet/econet.c gets compiled
    every time.

    It's because the filename matches net/%/%.c and that winds up depending
    on 'dummy'. In other words, Rules.make is reserving certain names and
    patterns and net/econet/econet.c happens to step on one.

    Extra compilation doesn't bug me; *missing* compilation bugs me; so I
    am going to leave it here.

    You can do this to get a trace log:

    (make -d vmlinux subdirs=NET 2>&1) | less
