The original script is broken, if you run it on a compiled
kernel tree.

No source file found for arch/x86/boot/a20.o
No source file found for arch/x86/boot/bioscall.o
No source file found for arch/x86/boot/cmdline.o
No source file found for arch/x86/boot/copy.o
No source file found for arch/x86/boot/cpucheck.o
No source file found for arch/x86/boot/early_serial_console.o
No source file found for arch/x86/boot/edd.o
No source file found for arch/x86/boot/main.o
No source file found for arch/x86/boot/mca.o
No source file found for arch/x86/boot/memory.o
No source file found for arch/x86/boot/pm.o
No source file found for arch/x86/boot/pmjump.o
No source file found for arch/x86/boot/printf.o

...

Running under perl debugger shows that the script has
done chdir prior to the failing test:

if (! -e "$source.c" && ! -e "$source.S") {
# No obvious source, exclude the object if it is conglomerate
>> open(my $objdumpdata, "$objdump $basename|")
or die "$objdump $fullname failed $!\n";
For the first error:
DB<3> x $source
0 'arch/x86/boot/a20'
DB<4> !!pwd
/home/shemminger/kernel/net-next-2.6/arch/x86/boot
DB<5> x $fullname
0 'arch/x86/boot/a20.o'
DB<6> x $basename
0 'a20.o'

Therefore the problem was that $source was full path not the base
of the file name 'a20'
