lustre doesn't use "normal" kernel makefiles.

I supposed that the entire staging/lustre/
path could be built for every change, but for
most of staging, and nearly all of the rest
of the kernel tree, using:

	make <path>file.o


I know there can be many enhancements to the
reformat script, but I think a minimally
acceptable version is a decent start.

So, thanks for trying it out.

And keep the complaints coming.

cheers, Joe
