I never said I did a "make fs/reiserfs". I did a
"make SUBDIRS=fs/reiserfs" which does produce a .ko file.

But even shorter is to do a "make M=fs/reiserfs", which also works.

But, I guess what was added was the ability to just type the module
itself. That's cool, but I haven't had the need to do that (yet).
