Subject: [PATCH v2 05/29] modpost: re-add warning about missing *.mod file

This reverts 4be40e22233c ("kbuild: do not emit src version warning for

I do not fully understand what that commit addressed, but commit
91341d4b2c19 ("kbuild: introduce new option to enhance section mismatch
analysis") introduced partial section checks by using modpost. built-in.o
was parsed by modpost. Even modules had a problem because *.mod files
were created after the modpost check.

Commit b7dca6dd1e59 ("kbuild: create *.mod with full directory path and
remove MODVERDIR") stopped doing that. Now that modpost is only invoked
after the directory descend, *.mod files should always exist at the
modpost stage. If not, something went wrong, which should be warned.
