[PATCH] kbuild: version.h should depend on .kernelrelease
Jan Beulich [Wed, 22 Feb 2006 12:29:04 +0000 (13:29 +0100)]
Rebuilding a previously built tree while using make's -j option from
time to time results in the version.h check running at the same time as
the updating of .kernelrelease, resulting in UTS_RELEASE remaining an
empty string (and as a side effect causing the entire kernel to be
rebuilt).
