This took me a bit to find out what was wrong...

Usually I don't run "make mrproper", as it removes files I may want to
keep (e.g. tags). Hence I ran "git ls-files -o | grep m68k | xargs rm"
(I usually build in separate output directories), confirmed with "git
ls-files -o" there were no remaining build artefacts, and was surprised
to discover I still got the error message above?!?

Apparently arch/m68k/include/generated was still present, but as "git
ls-files -o" only shows files, not directories, it was not listed.
Perhaps the directory checks above can be changed to directory exists
_and_ is not empty?

Thanks!

Gr{oetje,eeting}s,

Geert
