[Buildroot] Error because of mix of two different revisions of kernel?

	I'm getting an error building a system:

	After configuring and running make, the kernel gets compiled
successfully but the procedure terminates with an error.

	What I don't understand is this - I selected a specific kernel revision
-, but the error mentions the folder


	I may have selected that revision previously but changed to so
some old data might be persisting and causing the problem, is the
solution to do a complete clean? That takes quite a while.

Thanks for the help.

Here is the output of the make:
