I kind of agree. My Makefile foo is not very strong any other way I
know would duplicate code. What would you suggest?

[ Best I can think of is:

        srctree := $(KBUILD_SRC)

        # if KBUILD_FULL_PATH=1 then do not use relative path
	ifneq ($(KBUILD_FULL_PATH), 1)
                ifeq ($(KBUILD_SRC)/,$(dir $(CURDIR)))
                        # building in a subdirectory of the source tree
                        srctree := ..
                endif
        endif


Is this better?

I would not care for those at all. The important is those files that
you need to point and edit to fix stuff. The generated files I better
not edit usually. The edit is in some other place, right?

I saw that this patch caused other breakage as well. Will you be
fixing those? Do you want to own this or you still need a ver2
of this patch?

Thanks
