Update: after some hours of tests:

- with 2.6.28 some symbolic links from v4l directory to the *.{c,h} in 
../drivers/media subdirs are not created.
- = OK
- = OK
- 2.6.28 = failure

if i try to compile after a previous run with or 
compiling runs (but still the error message of find after creating 
symbolic links),
because the symbolic links are already created from previous run. I'm 
wondering wether i'm the only one with that problem..
