Description gentoo@imrebuild.com 2020-11-29 18:35:49 UTC
sys-kernel/gentoo-kernel-bin is not an out-of-tree module. Rebuilding it is meaningless.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge -pv @module-rebuild

@dev-portage, do we have some way of declaring 'do not rebuild me'?  If not, could we add some variable for that?

For the x11-module-rebuild, we do something similar, where we set exclude-files = /usr/bin/Xorg in order to exclude x11-base/xorg-server from the rebuild set. Maybe we can use a similar pattern for sys-kernel/gentoo-kernel-bin?
