SubjectRe: nsdeps not working on modules in 5.4-rc1
And running the build differently, from the root of the git tree
(5.4-rc1) rather than using the Ubuntu 5.4-rc1 headers also fails

e.g. "make M=fs/cifs modules nsdeps"

...
LD [M] fs/cifs/cifs.o
Building modules, stage 2.
MODPOST 1 modules
WARNING: module cifs uses symbol sigprocmask from namespace
_fs/cifs/cache.o), but does not import it.
...
WARNING: module cifs uses symbol posix_test_lock from namespace
cifs/cache.o), but does not import it.
CC [M] fs/cifs/cifs.mod.o
LD [M] fs/cifs/cifs.ko
Building modules, stage 2.
MODPOST 1 modules
./scripts/nsdeps: 34: local: ./fs/cifs/cifsfs.c: bad variable name
make: *** [Makefile:1710: nsdeps] Error 2
