You need to clean up this tree (with make-kpkg clean) before you use
it. BTW, where does it come from nowadays? I always thought Ben
switched to using the Bitkeeper tree a while ago.

AFAICT, there is no include/linux/version.h in the Bitkeeper tree, nor
in Tom's rsync tree, nor in my rsync tree (which both pull directly
from the Bitkeeper tree).

For personal use, I recommend one of the rsync trees, keeping in mind
that you have to clean the one from penguinppc.org before use. If you
want something more fancy, you can clone the Bitkeeper tree, here is
what I do on rsync.theorie.physik.uni-muenchen.de:
The tree is updated by running the commands
bk pull -t -q
bk -r get -q -T
through a cronjob, and then made available with:
path = /some/where
comment = Benjamin Herrenschmidt's Linux 2.4 for PowerPC
exclude = BitKeeper ChangeSet SCCS
I believe that Tom does exactly the same, apart from leaving out that
-T option. But I happen to like accurate timestamps.
