A file which does not exist is always considered out of date (note .PHONY or
FORCE targets).  However, make doesn't include them in the $? list.

This was fixed on 3 Jan 2006, but the fix showed up an error in the Linux
kernel build system (see bug #16002).  In order to give them time to clean up
I'm reverting this change for one release.  I'm adding this bug as a
placeholder for the next release.

The fix is commented out in remake.c:update_file_1().
