The behavior in and of itself (to me) is unintuitive. I use a different wrapper script [*] to install kernels with a different name because I want them to be versioned based on $KERNCONF + revision data. I only fixed building multiple kernels because the change that glebius tested didn’t work with more than one KERNCONF (hence the double commit).

I think the default behavior should be “yes” (not “no”) as many folks use a single KERNCONF, not multiple (on head), but I’m biased in this thinking...
