    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
    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

    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.
