Hi all,

I am unable to execute make modules_install install. 
I get the following error:

ln: target 'linux-00096-gd1aa1a8/source' is not a directory
Makefile:1281: recipe for target '_modinst_' failed
make[1]: *** [_modinst_] Error 1
Makefile:296: recipe for target '__build_one_by_one' failed
make: *** [__build_one_by_one] Error 2

I made a change to a driver and did not commit the changes. I then built the kernel and two weird looking files appeared in my root directory:


Since then , I have commited my changes and made the kernel again. The
dirs still exist. I have tried manually removing them but they reappear
 whenever I make the kernel again.

 I am running the version: 5.0.0-rc2+

I am not able to make the kernel modules because of this. Is this a
common problem? Any answers?

Thank you
