It seems if you have a broken asm/ symlink in include/ (which happened as a
result of the x86 header moves, for me) the kernel won't try to update it
appropriately, and this breaks "make prepare".

$ make ARCH=x86_64 prepare
CHK include/linux/version.h
CHK include/linux/utsrelease.h
GEN include/asm/asm-offsets.h
/bin/sh: include/asm/asm-offsets.h: No such file or directory
make[1]: *** [include/asm/asm-offsets.h] Error 1
make: *** [prepare0] Error 2

rm -f include/asm fixes it

This was just from taking a 2.6.27 tree, git clean -d -f, git pull, make
oldconfig. Might be a nice thing to fix?
