in kernel tree:

from make help:
namespacecheck  - Name space analysis on compiled kernel

I think the solution is just to support alternative targets in our
configuration setup. Today aiaiai-make-kernel supports multiple targets,
but nothing uses it. I believe that we can just extend the configuration
to allow passing targets. The two ways to do this would be to modify the
config block to include targets as a list, or to add an extra --targets
parameter. I chose to go with the support adding the parameter. I think
I sent some RFCs on this, as well as moving things into the config file.
