The failure starts here when using 6 threads or more and only when
compiling the black-swift_defconfig. After one successful build I can
reproduce this reliably here with:
rm -f include/generated/compile.h && make -j 6

Ups. How do the strings differ?
Another obvious way to fix the issue is to remove UTS_RELEASE and
UTS_VERSION from the pbl headers. Would that be an option?
