    SubjectPure kernel '2.6.37-rc1-00001-ge99d11d' shown as ~-dirty after compilation
    When I run 'make kernelrelease' on freshly cloned Linus' git tree it
    shows kernel version as: '2.6.37-rc1-00001-ge99d11d' - and that's
    But after compilation it turned up '2.6.37-rc1-00001-ge99d11d-dirty'.

    I didn't apply any custom patches to my local tree between 'make
    kernelrelease' and compilation. What I only added - and before running
    'make kernelrelease' - were the following Radeon firmware blobs for my
    graphic card, which I placed in <kernel-source>/firmware/radeon/, in
    order to compile them in:

    That's how I always did and none of the git-kernels I compiled before
    was referred to as '-dirty' due to the firmware blobs added manually.
    Also, the kernel version shown by 'make kernelrelease' never differed
    from the final kernel version after compilation. Of course assuming
    that no patches were applied in the meantime and no extra string was
    appended manually to the kernel version.

    So, what's this '-dirty' about?
