Package: module-assistant
Version: 0.10.8
Severity: critical

If you build a custom kernel with m-a maybe with this command:
 make-kpkg --initrd --append-to-version "-lustre-"
the file include/linux/utsrelease.h contains this definition:
#define UTS_RELEASE "2.6.22-lustre-"  /*(for a 2.6.22er kernel)*/

After building one module with m-a against this kernel with this options:
 m-a -l 2.6.22-lustre- -t  build lustre

this string is resetted to the default "2.6.22".
If you now want to build another module it fails with "no kernel sources 

Manually resetting this string back to the correct value fixes this problem.

As this prevents to build another module to a self build kernel this is a major 
issue in my eyes, this is the reason I chose a RC critical severity for this 

i've not tested if thie behaviour is already fixed in lenny or in sid, so maybe 
this could also affect lenny.
