The reduced test case can be simplified to these steps:

git co f1fe2d21f4e1aca8644cea888dc618f0183ad671\^1
configure your kernel
ARCH=mips make arch/mips/kernel/signal.o
git co f1fe2d21f4e1aca8644cea888dc618f0183ad671
ARCH=mips make arch/mips/kernel/signal.o

The problem seems to be that if there was a previous build which
resulted in creating an asm-generic wrapper for a file
(arch/mips/include/generated/asm/ucontext.h in that case), but this file
was later moved into an arch-specific, non asm-generic header file, then
we are just not going to automatically remove this auto-generated
wrapper, and generate the new one.

This seems to be aggravated by the fact that commit
f1fe2d21f4e1aca8644cea888dc618f0183ad671 does not add ucontext.h to
arch/mips/include/uapi/Kbuild, Paul, James is that intentional?

After trying to mess a bit with a clean solution, I just gave up and
decided that this was not worth fixing since it is a very infrequent
problem.
