Not meaning to pick on Roland here... but surely we should be
recommending to follow the instructions in /usr/src/UPDATING? (as the
documentation page also mentions), rather than our own abbreviations
thereof?

The only source of confusion then is whether to define ALWAYS_CHECK_MAKE
whilst building/installing a kernel (as Chris mentions) - which is
probably worth clarifying (never do it myself...and never had issues,
but UPDATING is a little ambiguous on that point).

Cheers
