kbuild: Hack for depmod not handling X.Y versions
Michal Marek [Thu, 9 Jun 2011 14:35:41 +0000 (16:35 +0200)]
depmod from module-init-tools < 3.13 and the busybox depmod check if the
kernel release starts with <num>.<num>.<num>. To support these versions,
we create a symlink with two numbers prepended.
