Yes, an empty include/asm-um/elf.h which is not by default replaced by a
symlink. Sadly a patch which should have been deleted it simply emptied it
(courtesy of quilt). So

include/asm-um/elf.h:
$(call create_the_symlink)
(which is pseudo-code) won't create it.

As a last resort I'll force that symlink to be unconditional (I hope not
needing this).
