    kbuild 2.5 deliberately does not support modversions, you can turn it
    on but it does nothing. The original implementation of modversions
    does not fit with the way that people build kernels now (apply patches,
    change configs, rebuild without make mrproper). To do modversions
    right needs a new version of modutils as well, there is no chance of
    that work being started until kbuild 2.5 is in the kernel.

    It works for me. menuconfig does not use include/asm-$ARCH.
