This issue had already been fixed by the side-effect of
another patch, which is in linux-next.

See this:

commit 10077c9f2dae1afabab2808a0326ecf3e8e5a82c
Author: Masahiro Yamada <>

    s390: drop meaningless 'targets' from tools Makefile

    'targets' should be specified to include .*.cmd files to evaluate
    if_changed or friends.

    Here, facility-defs.h and dis-defs.h are generated by filechk.

    Because filechk does not generate .*.cmd file, the 'targets' addition
    is meaningless. The filechk correctly updates the target when its
    content is changed.
