SubjectRe: [PATCH] kbuild: Do not unnecessarily regenerate modules.builtin
Hi Michal,

This breaks a "make modules modules_install" type build:

$ rm -rf ../ntest.obj ../lib
$ mkdir ../ntest.obj ../lib
$ echo CONFIG_MODULES=y >../ntest.conf
$ KCONFIG_ALLCONFIG=../ntest.conf make O=../ntest.obj allnoconfig
$ make O=../ntest.obj INSTALL_MOD_PATH=../ -s modules modules_install
cp: cannot stat `/home/sfr/kernels/ntest.obj/modules.builtin': No such file or directory

reverting that patch allows that build to work again.

Unfortunately, this breaks our test system which like to do

make zImage
make modules
make modules_install

The last step fails :-(
