No.

Since you did not run mrproper,
Kbuild _correctly_ showed error.
This is the expected and correct behavior. :)

The upstream kernel is not a place
to be customized for your workflow. Sorry.


Every developer has a set of handy custom commands.

Since you are already running a long command,
why don't you add one more line, and put in ~/.bash_aliases or somewhere?

my_mrproper()
{
git ls-files -o | grep m68k | xargs rm
rm -rf arch/m68k/include/generated
}
