SubjectRE: [PATCH] trivial little Makefile patch (2.3.49-2)
Yes, the removal would work, the main reason for it was just duplicated
effort- sorting once with ls and once with sort. ls -U actually does
give different output than ls on my system.

However this is all mute - ls sans the -U probably gives no quicker of a
response, gives the same response after piping through sort, and should be
removed if non-GNU versions of 'ls' don't support the option.

In my humble, not-subscribed-to-linux-kernel-list opinion, of course :)
