Is it really necessary to change the version information
that I place in the Makefile? You don't change anything
else in the Makefile other than that.

I use:

EXTRAVERSION = _mppe

this is perfectly legal as far as normal use is concerned
(and it was okay with kernelmod.0.7.1), however once
the kernelmod.sh script runs it totally breaks the make.
Your change to the Makefile is totally unnecessary and
obviously does not work so the change was not tested.
I already had a kernel installed and the script could not
find it because it screwed with the Makefile. The script
then continues stating everything is okay when nothing
is built, not even the rpm files that I asked for.

I can't see any reason why you really needed to change
the version information. Please leave the Makefile alone
unless there is a better reason than changing it to fit
your own person style.
