[Buildroot] kernel module dir following move to git

Hello All,

Following the move to git I am seeing the kernel modules being built to a different 
directory. The code expects modules to be built in 

LINUX26_VERSION_PROBED = `$(MAKE) $(LINUX26_MAKE_FLAGS) -C $(LINUX26_DIR) -s kernelrelease`

Since the move to git the kernel has changed what it reports with kernelrelease to 
$(VERSION)-g7664a62a-dirty. Presumably the kernel is spotting that buildroot came from a 
git repository and is appending info about the checkout?

Any suggestion on how to prevent this happening?
