The build fails on this file because the kernel makefiles don't have
complete dependency information. Make is smart enough to automatically
check out foo.c and foo.h if you say

foo.o: foo.c foo.h
$(CC) -c foo.c -o foo.o

but in the absence of that information, make cannot deduce it.

The work-around is to simply check out everything before running make:
% bk -Ur get -S
