I am having some trouble keeping m68k up-to-date in the debian svn, is this
always the list of the latest patches?
and when a new releaese is ready, you put it into something like this:

I noticed that some of the patches have changed (just little bits, but
enough to make the patch fail), so I am thinking of copying your structure
in the debian svn, ie having a new directory for every version. Then
adding/updating patches could be done almost automatically.

But I discovered another problem in the build, which was not there
previously. After the kernel and modules have been built, some files from
the build tree are being removed:

rm $(PACKAGE_DIR)/lib/modules/$(REAL_VERSION)/{build,source,modules.*}

I had to change it to this for m68k to succeed:

rm $(PACKAGE_DIR)/lib/modules/$(REAL_VERSION)-m68k/{build,source,modules.*}


But it seems this is not the correct solution:

 This is a workaround for some generic problem. The kernel thinks it have
 a different EXTRAVERSION than the package. Please revert and fix the
 real problem.

There is a clue hidden here for what the real problem is, maybe you can
solve the puzzle?
