[root@stp linux-2.6.8-1.521]# 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-sourcecode-2.6.8-1.521

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.cd /usr/src/linux-2.6.8-1.521
2.make fs/coda/
3.
    

Actual Results:  Code gets compiled.

Expected Results:  Code compiles, then is linked to create a loadable module.

Additional info:

Also, the relationship between /lib/modules/2.6.8-1.521/build and
/usr/src/linux-2.6.8-1.521 is confusing.
Comment 1 Dave Jones 2004-10-29 01:36:40 EDT
make help doesn't mention that it should build the modules.
(nor should it, its done at a different stage)

if you want this to change, take it up with upstream.
