    This patch looks good to me, and I'd prefer it over the (twice
    corrected) one currently in -mm.

    - It's close to what Daniel Drake proposed recently [1] (main
    difference: corrects the very same problem for ld-option, which might
    otherwise bite us later) and what's already in Gentoo's patchkernel,

    - it abstains from using mktemp, hopefully making Andi happy ;),

    - resolves the current Gentoo sandbox issues without touching more
    kbuild code than necessary.

    Kind regards,
