    Okay, I might get persuaded to take that check out if it really makes life
    harder. Wouldn't it work to not have O_TARGET in the Makefile at all, I
    think 2.4 shouldn't care as long as you just "make modules"?

    It shouldn't, I kinda deliberately decided to keep the old syntax for
    this. So it would be a bug.
