[pkg-nvidia-devel] Bug#460529: nvidia-kernel-source: build does not honor umask 002 and creates non-group-writeable files

Package: nvidia-kernel-source
Version: 169.07-1
Severity: normal


when nvidia-kernel is built as non-root with umask 002, the build
process leaves - nevertheless - files around that have mode 644. This
breaks kernel build for other users on this system.

Steps to reproduce:
- unpack vanilla kernel and nvidia-kernel-source
- make sure that all /usr/src/modules is group writeable:
  sudo chmod -R g+w /usr/src/modules
- set umask 002
- fakeroot make-kpkg --revision=20080113.0 kernel_image
- find /usr/src/modules/ -not -perm /020 -ls
- see that all files are still group writeable
- build nvidia-kernel:
  fakeroot make-kpkg --revision=20080113.0 --added-modules=nvidia-kernel modules_image
- find /usr/src/modules/ -not -perm /020 -ls
- find out that numerous non-group-writeable files were left lying

Other module packages behave better, so I'd like to say on first try
that kernel-package is innocent.
