Bug ID: 22462
Summary: quoted include path
Assignee: systemtap at sourceware dot org
Reporter: dsmith at redhat dot com
Target Milestone: ---
When systemtap builds a kernel module, the Makefile it generates has the

variable, the translator has always quoted this value for safety.
However, on recent Ubuntu kernels (and perhaps other distributions), this
quoting has confused the kernel build machinery.
Note that the following (unmerged) kernel patch tries to fix the problem:
