Subject[PATCH] kbuild: rpm-pkg: Support GNU tar >= 1.29
There is a change in how command line parsing is done in this version.
Excludes and includes are now ordered with the file list. Since
the spec file puts the file list before the exclude list it means newer
tar ignores the excludes and packs all the build output into the
kernel-devel RPM resulting in a huge package.

Simple argument re-ordering fixes the problem.

At the very least this effects FC27.
