Subjectbuilding a specific in-tree module is currently a bit broken

i know sam ravnborg has been Cc'ed on a janitors list posting
mentioning this but, just in case this note can get a fix snuck in
there quickly before 2.6.23 (this is on i386, but i'm guessing applies
to all arches):

$ make distclean
$ make defconfig
$ make menuconfig (select visor.ko to be built a module)
$ make drivers/usb/serial/visor.ko
scripts/kconfig/conf -s arch/i386/Kconfig
CHK include/linux/version.h
UPD include/linux/version.h
CHK include/linux/utsrelease.h
UPD include/linux/utsrelease.h
SYMLINK include/asm -> include/asm-i386
CC arch/i386/kernel/asm-offsets.s
GEN include/asm-i386/asm-offsets.h
CALL scripts/
CC scripts/mod/empty.o
HOSTCC scripts/mod/mk_elfconfig
MKELF scripts/mod/elfconfig.h
HOSTCC scripts/mod/file2alias.o
HOSTCC scripts/mod/modpost.o
HOSTCC scripts/mod/sumversion.o
HOSTLD scripts/mod/modpost
HOSTCC scripts/kallsyms
HOSTCC scripts/conmakehash
HOSTCC scripts/bin2c
CC [M] drivers/usb/serial/visor.o
/bin/sh: .tmp_versions/visor.mod: No such file or directory
MODPOST 0 modules

whoops. manually creating the directory .tmp_versions first fixes
this, but i'm not conversant enough with the Makefile to want to take
a shot at repairing this.
