Or more specifically, the 'dependancy' stage of the kernel knows
_nothing_ about SCCS. It _might_ not be that hard to hack up the
scripts/mkdep.c program to check if an #include'd file exists (and if it
doesn't, if (any search patch)/SCCS exists, and if so, get it.

If it's just a flat list of files, it'd be rather hellish to maintain
I'd think. It _might_ not be too horrible to try and glean files from
CONFIG options (but isn't part of the point of the kernel's current dep
system to not depend on CONFIG_xxx options?) and assume all of include/
is needed.

Or kbuild-2.5 might just work since it does deps in a more 'correct'
