Yes, I realized that, quote:

"I wanted to submit this to the list, but just noticed that linux is
now using the gentargets infrastructure. To address this problem we
a. adapt gentargets, so that the generic .stamp_downloaded rule also
depends on the downloaded archive. Is there any reason why this would
not be good?
b. adapt the version string in linux.mk so that a custom tarball is
automatically picked up."

Best regards,
