For now, we can just toss SUBLEVEL= into MAKE_ARGS and work around it.
But it's a hack.

No, please don't do that. It turns out that a three-number kernel
release string is de-facto part of the userspace ABI (too many programs
do a sscanf(uts.release, "%d.%d.%d",&major,&patchlevel,&sublevel) to
do some branching based on kernel version). I'll look into the
buildsystem failure on Monday,

Should be fixed with http://kernel.opensuse.org/cgit/kernel-source/commit/?id=95c99779565c535ee333415a65859634ba9da8d1
