make NO_MAKEFILE_GEN=1 foo/bar.o. Very low overhead for quick and
dirty testing of changes, but if you want an accurate kernel build, you
have to take the overhead. kbuild 2.4 overhead for a full build when
only minor changes have been made is even worse.

Hmm, that was working, I will investigate.

I have found some cases where the timestamps are not tracked correctly
so changes to dependencies are not always detected. Fixed in
build-2.5-core-2, out tomorrow.
