    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.
