Thanks for the kernel-build info.

Although it may work for you, and I am not bold enough
to try it myself, not using make bzImage differs from the
guide I was referring to.  Specifically.


And I found this when I tried to find the "Official" guide over on
the Linux Documentation Project's website.

If ever there was a use for the tee command, building a kernel
is surely high on the list.  I do like your safe approach.
