I've actually converted my stuff to use the Makefiles, which does simplify
things, but the problem I had was mainly with the whole vermagic.c stuff and
needing a full source tree + compiled objects (or having the tree writeable
by users who want to compile modules) around just to build my module.
Anyway, Joel Becker, Christian Zander and others have eloquently voiced my
complaints previously in this thread, so I won't go over them again :)

As far as using the kernel build system, so far so good - it's nice, and
builds things correctly though I'm having some trouble getting it to
install my module correctly, which may just indicate that I need to re-read
the docs.
