linux-3.9.0-rc1+: Output from "make kernelrelease"contains incorrectdata

In Linus' current tree, the first time the command "make kernelrelease" is run after building a kernel, the output contains some unwanted text. Subsequent uses of the command produce the expected output. This appears to be a regression - 3.8.2 does not have this problem.

This is easily demonstrated from the command line by the following:

<build the kernel>
System is 2311 kB
CRC a4e38b86
Kernel: arch/x86/boot/bzImage is ready (#186)
$ make kernelrelease
scripts/kconfig/conf --silentoldconfig Kconfig 3.9.0-rc1+
$ make kernelrelease

Happy to test the fix.
