SubjectModutils can't handle long kernel names
Hello,

I've gotten into the habbit of adding the names of the patches I add to my
kernel to the extraversion string in the top level Makefile in my kernels.

Here's my latest example:
VERSION = 2
PATCHLEVEL = 4
SUBLEVEL = 15
EXTRAVERSION=-pre1+freeswan-1.91+xsched+netdev_random+ext3-0.9.15-2414+ext3-mem_acct+elevator

Unfortunately, with this long kernel version number, modutils (I've noticed
depmod and modutils so far...) choke on it.

depmod:
depmod: Can't open /lib/modules/2.4.15-pre1+freeswan-1.91+xsched+netdev_random+ext3-0.9.15-2414+e#1 SMP Thu Nov 8 20:18:04 PST 2001/modules.dep for writing

uname -r:
2.4.15-pre1+freeswan-1.91+xsched+netdev_random+ext3-0.9.15-2414+e#1 SMP Thu Nov 8 20:18:04 PST 2001

uname -a:
Linux mikef-linux.matchmail.com 2.4.15-pre1+freeswan-1.91+xsched+netdev_random+ext3-0.9.15-2414+e#1 SMP Thu Nov 8 20:18:04 PST 2001 #1 SMP Thu Nov 8 20:18:04 PST 2001 i686 unknown

Yep, I know, "don't do that!". Still, can this be fixed easily, or is it
one of those things that kbuild 2.5 will fix, and make everything rosy and
do my laundry too?

TIA,

Mike
