The first patch I submitted was faulty. I forgot to notify the
mailinglist about this, my apologies. The problem is the $(subst
",,$(KERNELNAME))" part. For most targets KERNELNAME is defined so the
command is expanded to something like "make bzImage modules". But for
the targets that do not have KERNELNAME defined (for example, the at91
target) the command is expanded to "make modules". In this case the main
image is not compiled anymore, only the modules.
I tried to fix this by first calling make with the KERNELNAME only (or
empty, which will build the default kernel image target), and then a
second call to make for only modules. An alternative way to fix this is
to make sure KERNELNAME is defined for every target, but that requires
reworking the target makefiles, and could break 3rd party targets that
do not have KERNELNAME defined.
