I feel like requiring a Make that's half a decade old for a feature
that also requires a toolchain released last October ago isn't
entirely unreasonable.

That being said, if Masahiro prefers not to rely on the wildcard
function's behavior here, which is a reasonable request, we could
simply use the shell to test for the file's existence:

diff --git a/scripts/Makefile.build b/scripts/Makefile.build
index 34d257653fb4..c6bd62f518ff 100644
--- a/scripts/Makefile.build
+++ b/scripts/Makefile.build
@@ -388,7 +388,7 @@ ifeq ($(CONFIG_LTO_CLANG) $(CONFIG_MODVERSIONS),y y)
cmd_update_lto_symversions = \
rm -f $@.symversions \
$(foreach n, $(filter-out FORCE,$^), \
- $(if $(wildcard $(n).symversions), \
+ $(if $(shell test -s $(n).symversions && echo y), \
; cat $(n).symversions >> $@.symversions))
else
cmd_update_lto_symversions = echo >/dev/null
This is not quite as efficient as using wildcard, but should work with
older Make versions too. Thoughts?
