If you have scripts that only do x=$(make kernelrelease), then you
should definitely fix them. You are right that the make kernelrelease |
tail -1 trick had always been working until 7ff525712acf, so I can apply
your patch. But please fix ktest.pl so that it's consistent with what
the help text says. Also, the Makefile patch should cover kernelversion
and image_name as well.
