SubjectRe: [PATCH] net/802/Makefile
   From: Keith Owens <>
Date: Tue, 27 Nov 2001 17:12:04 +1100

The source repository (whether BK or any other system) is not the
problem. You can get the timestamps right in the source but the moment
you generate and ship a diff then you lose control of timestamps. See
the long screed below about the problems with shipping generated files,
from kbuild-2.5.txt.

Even after reading this I don't understand why defkeymap.c gets
special treatment just because it requires external tools to generate.

If the timestamps get messed up, it's going to try to regerenerate the
file with loadkeys whether you have it or not.

At best, I'd be happy to take a patch which commented out the rule
which tries to generate net/802/cl2llc.c but not one which will chmod
it. Because the latter only makes sense if we are now deciding to do
this for _every_ such case in the tree.
