Andrew reported this yesterday, too. The followin patch should fix it
(added to the for-next branch):

Subject: [PATCH] kbuild: Generate modules.builtin in make modules_install

The previous approach didn't work if one did
make modules && make modules_install
Add modules.builtin as dependency of _modinst_, which is the target that
actually needs the file.
