Kernel build fails "cannot move âarch/arm/boot/compressed/.piggy.gzip.o.tmp" then succeeds

Ok, I guess it is second time I see it.

This time it is while cross-compiling 4.0 kernel on 4.4-rc5. Failure

AS arch/arm/boot/compressed/piggy.gzip.o
AS arch/arm/boot/compressed/piggy.gzip.o
mv: cannot move âarch/arm/boot/compressed/.piggy.gzip.o.tmpâ to âarch/arm/boot/compressed/.piggy.gzip.o.cmdâ: No such file or directory
scripts/ recipe for target 'arch/arm/boot/compressed/piggy.gzip.o' failed

arch/arm/Makefile:308: recipe for target 'zImage' failed

I'm building it like this...

eval ` -r 5.4 armv7a`
ARCH=arm long make -j 3 zImage uImage LOADADDR=0x8000 && \

It builds ok after re-run. Is building zImage and uImage at the same
time bad idea?

pavel@duo:~/stahl/linux$ ./mkit

Any other ideas?
