SubjectRe: time in the future during make for 2.4.0

I had this problem when I was upgrading my kernel, and happened to do
it during the daylight savings time roll-back. Confused the heck out
of me for a while. Anyways, you can try 'touching' all your files,
and do a 'make clean' then try again. If it doesn't complain about a
long arg list, you can try 'touch `find . -type f`'.
