Wow, that's odd. "make" tries to compute dependencies for kernel
drivers, while it isn't supposed to do so when the target is "user". I
have no idea why it does this. Can't reproduce it here. Nobody reported
a problem with this so far.

Whatever the problme is, it's not related to the filesystem
organisation. Somehow, "make" doesn't behave the way we expect it to.
What version of make is it?

No idea :(

We have an IRC channel if you want. freenode::#linux-sensors.
