kbuild: removing .tmp_versions considered harmful
Pavel Roskin [Mon, 24 Apr 2006 19:55:27 +0000 (15:55 -0400)]
Remove *.mod files but not .tmp_versions for external builds

When "make install" is run as root, .tmp_versions is re-created and
becomes owned by root.  Subsequent "make" run by user fails because
.tmp_versions cannot be removed.
