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,
