I suspected something like that, but finding the relevant discussion
afterwards is different.

Right, found that quickly, but the question is what the authors' intent was.
I cannot tell from the code. Folks at #kernel seem to think the plus means
"built from a tarball", in which case this is a bug (the kernel was built
from a cloned tree).

I can easily add '+' to the list of filename characters in my terminal,
just thought to ask in case it's a bug.
