    Correct - but why keep kernel trees around full of build files, when
    there is a proper solution to keep them out of the src.

    The problem was generated files. If a generated file were present in
    the kernel source tree, it would not be built again.
    This resulted in a few suprises during development, and I therefore
    added the check for a kernel source tree with no built-files.
    It can be avoided, but that required too much surgery in various
    makefiles and include statements. So that part is 2.7 material.
