I have investigated a bit more, and stumbled on this:

ts@xenon:~/kernel/linux-2.6.23-mm1-work> make include/config/kernel.release
ts@xenon:~/kernel/linux-2.6.23-mm1-work> cat include/config/kernel.release
2.6.23-mm1-testing
ts@xenon:~/kernel/linux-2.6.23-mm1-work> make
Using ARCH=i386 CROSS_COMPILE=
CHK include/linux/version.h
CHK include/linux/utsrelease.h
[...]
Kernel: arch/i386/boot/bzImage is ready (#1)
Building modules, stage 2.
MODPOST 1085 modules
ts@xenon:~/kernel/linux-2.6.23-mm1-work> cat include/config/kernel.release
2.6.23-mm1
ts@xenon:~/kernel/linux-2.6.23-mm1-work>

Hmmm. "Curiouser and curiouser", said Alice.

So the content of the file include/config/kernel.release generated
by "make" varies depending on whether I ask "make" to create just
that file, or an entire kernel!? That runs against everything I
ever learned about "make"!

My ability to comprehend the inner workings of Kbuild ends here.
I'll just skip this -mm release and wait for 2.6.24-rc1, hoping
it won't have the same problem.
