on 4): yep, no need for PHONY stuff (simplified script attached)

The reason for this cropping in is that I had a more complex script
that reflected my actual situation; I have a directory that contains
some kernel modules, some testing programs and other junk, and I
build a complete Makefile that has rules for all these guys, not
just the kernel modules. Which is why I violated your sensibilties
about the other points I guess. I didn't just want to pass the
work off to the kernel building stuff.

If you want to do this I agree all you need is the part to generate
a objs-m list and the Rules.make stuff for 2.4, and that is
simpler. You could indeed remove all the targets etc, but then
as you note, you can't just say make, but have to do the
make -C KERNEL_SOURCE SUBDIRS=$PWD modules
business.

I've attached that one too.
