Why do you think it's useless?

    - If System.map is included in the kernel image udeb, pass it to depmod
      via -F and delete it when done. This is to support building on systems
      running 2.6.
    - Add a kernel to the demo image type, because this is necessary to get
      the System.map so depmod will work on 2.6. 
    - copy System.map to $(TEMP) instead of deleting it, I understand sparc
      needs this

Have you tested on all architectures?

What about the code in build/Makefile that handles System.map, shouldn't
it also be removed?
