Your release has a couple bogus bits.  It creates
'arch/i386/vmlinux.lds.s' which is normally created (for some reason)
during a kernel build and deleted with mrproper.

It also has the following diff that looks like output from a mistyped
redirection shell command.

I didn't look too closely so there may be more.  Also, it contains
kprobes support but that isn't in your changelog.
