I'm of the same opinion as Matt - the discussion on the change of
directory location never reached a full resolution, and, especially in
the case of a new top level directory, I'd really expect consensus.
I also think the proposed new name for the directory is not correct -
these are kernel modules we are talking about, not a full kernel.
The directory name should describe this.
In its present form, the change is not complete, as the build fails
because the directory has not been created.
nbmtree: ./kernel: No such file or directory
nbmtree: failed at line 35903 of the specification
It would be a real shame if we were to foul up the 5.0 release at this
late stage, with a change that has not been worked through thoroughly.
Why does 5.0 need this - modules were introduced after 5.0 was branched,
and I would expect any 5.1 or subsequent release to be the same.
Before we proceed with this, can we all reach consensus on tech-kern,
