There is no make version "3.8".  I assume you mean "3.80".

I can't explain this, given this description.  Probably someone
familiar with Linux kernel makefiles might be able to help.

Otherwise I recommend you run "make -d" in both the working and not
working situations and walk through the output (it will be massive) to
try to determine what causes the difference in behavior.

Or, you can use "diff" to compare the Makefiles themselves and see if
there're any changes that seem likely to have fixed this situation in
the newer Linux kernel makefiles.
