OK. Why doesn't it do what module-assistant does?
I could add a static config.h and extraversion.h to the package as we don't
need to worry about versions with backported changes in Debian, unlike some
other distributions I could mention. However we're switching to a more
autoconf-like way of detecting kernel features, which will mean that in future
it's essential to run a script before compiling any source files. I'll try
using the filechk rules in kbuild to do this.
