Subject[PATCH] make: add modules_update target
From
Date
Here is a a patch that adds a kernel build target called
"modules_update".

The existing "modules_install" target blows away the entire
/lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel directory and copies out every single
module when called at the top level.

This new "modules_update" target only copies out modules that have
changed, using "cp -u". This less zealous method is a more efficient
approach to module installation for kernel developers working on single,
or small numbers of modules.

Where "make modules_install" was taking ~ 3 minutes, "make
modules_update" is taking < 1 minute, as a rough benchmark.
