Description of problem:
When building custom kernel packages from kernel SRPM, I got argument list too long. Apperently, mkdep used find to build list of depencies. xargs should be used there.
Fix is simple. I'll attach it. I used 999 as patch number, please change as appropriate. The attchment contains only the patch file that needs to be applied from the spec file.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. set CONFIG_SCSI_MULTI_LUN=y in kernel config files and attempt to rebuild the kernel RPM packages. It fails for target i386 (the one that also builds kernel-source and kernel-docs).
Created attachment 117928 [details]
patch for linux/Makefile
This doesn't seem to be important enough to fix just on its own, so mark it DEFER.
Not a security issue.
