I noticed a bug here.


allnoconfig + CONFIG_MODULES=y
will create empty modules.order and modules.builtin.

Then, 'basename -a' will emit the error messages
since it receives zero arguments.


basename: missing operand
Try 'basename --help' for more information.



I can fix it by checking the size of them.


    # If both modules.order and modules.builtin are empty,
    # "basename -a" emits error messages.
    if [ ! -s modules.order -a ! -s modules.builtin ]; then
            return
    fi

    same_name_modules=$(cat modules.order modules.builtin | \
                                   xargs basename -a | sort | uniq -d)




I wonder if there is a more elegant way...
