Hi there!

I think this happens when you're not in a valid branch!

Type git-branch and you'll notice it.

Please switch to the andy tracking branch and build again.

Would a kernel FAQ be useful? I'll check the wiki tomorrow to see what
we have there ...  I just don't remember now.

Perhaps we should also modify the build script to warn about this
fact. It's a FAQ now...
