    Splitting source and object directories is indeed sane. But SUSE
    implementation broke the 'build' symlink which has been the recommended way
    for a long time to get to the main kernel Makefile directory.

    I have asked you n times to refrain from merging the 'build' symlink
    breakage. I ask you again to not merge that breakage.

    Please merge the 'object' symlink version instead.

    SUSE folks made a silly mistake and broke stuff. It was even more silly for
    them to try to submit that breakage to mainline.
