Subject: [PATCH] kbuild: modules_install: Warn if System.map file is not found

From: Randy Dunlap <rdunlap@...radead.org>

If there is no System.map file for "make modules_install",
scripts/depmod.sh will silently exit with success, having done
nothing.  Since this is an unexpected situation, change it to
report a Warning for the missing file.  The behavior is not
changed except for the Warning message.

The (previous) silent success and new Warning can be reproduced
by:
$ make mrproper; make defconfig
$ make modules; make modules_install

and since System.map is produced by "make vmlinux", the steps
above omit producing the System.map file.
