I'm seeing the same. If I do:

$ find . -name '*.o.cmd' | xargs rm
$ make allmodconfig
$ make -j...
...
$ find-command-above...

I get no hits. And doing spot-testing shows dep changes are detected:

$ ls -l fs/nfsd/nfs4xdr.o
-rw-rw-r-- 1 kees kees 276088 Feb 22 13:15 fs/nfsd/nfs4xdr.o
$ make fs/nfsd/nfs4xdr.o
...generated-files-only...
$ ls -l fs/nfsd/nfs4xdr.o
-rw-rw-r-- 1 kees kees 276088 Feb 22 13:15 fs/nfsd/nfs4xdr.o
$ touch include/linux/compiler_types.h
$ make fs/nfsd/nfs4xdr.o
...various...
  CC [M]  fs/nfsd/nfs4xdr.o
$ ls -l fs/nfsd/nfs4xdr.o
-rw-rw-r-- 1 kees kees 276088 Feb 22 13:21 fs/nfsd/nfs4xdr.o

Am I missing something?

Is there a mode where we're now rebuilding too much?
