Jeff, sometimes you should upgrade changelogs... also, I'm working on Kbuild &
UML interaction, so please send me Kbuild related patches, to avoid
inconveniences like rejects for me and let me clean up patches...
In particular, this patch reverts some changes I did and especially readds
this, which is a residual from when we set EXTRAVERSION in arch/um/Makefile
so that the dependency was needed.
