This is not correct. It only applies if the target directory Makefile is
excluded by the make flags, or possibly if the target file is a complex
one build from various source files.

I don't think anything changed. It always worked like that for me.
I would suggest to go back to an older kernel and try it there.
You'll see exactly the same error. Maybe you just never encountered
a file like that.

So, in other words, what you should have said is "not compile tested".
Alternatively, you could install cross compilers and compile test the
patches with those.
