Subject: Re: Linux 5.11-rc1

[ Please CC me I am not subscribed to LKML and linux-kbuild ML ]

Hi Linus, Hi Mashiro,

thanks for the Linux v5.11-rc1 release.

With a new release I always do my first builds with my distro's
default compiler and linker (GCC v10.2.1 and GNU/ld BFD v2.35.1).
( It's approx. 40% faster than LLVM toolchain v11.0.1-rc2 here on
Debian/testing AMD64. )

The only warning I see for the first time (with v5.10.3 not observed):

  sh ./scripts/ depmod 5.11.0-rc1-1-amd64-gcc10-bfd
Warning: 'make modules_install' requires depmod. Please install it.
This is probably in the kmod package.

The only change I see in this area is:

436e980e2ed5 kbuild: don't hardcode depmod path

depmod from kmod Debian package is placed and I have no /sbin in my
user's path (and not before?):

$ dpkg -L kmod | grep bin | grep depmod

$ which depmod
[ empty ]

$ echo $PATH

OK, this is a warning, but might confuse other users.

Please, let me know if you need further information and keep me CCed.
