Fix linux.ko false dependency
The most recent driver update includes a second nvidia-modeset.ko file.
However, the build process doesn't respect the LINUX compile option.
I've adapted way this is done for the core driver and included a fix.
Is there any chance this could be committed? It makes the driver usable again without having to bring linux.ko into the mix.
Danfe doesn't really respond to bugzilla. Throw it in phabricator and threaten to commit it and he may respond within a few weeks.
He does respond to Bugzilla, and usually simple patches would be committed shortly, except when not being interrupted by an unfortunate HDD failure he's currently trying to recover from.

New revision: 423810
Fix `linux.ko' false dependency. Starting with version 358.09, the driver
includes a new kernel module, `nvidia-modeset.ko', a driver component that
works in conjunction with the `nvidia.ko' kernel module.
However, previously the build process did not respect LINUX compile (port)
option. Adopt the same way this is done for the core driver.
