Ignore it, the kernel build design is wrong. make dep is supposed to
pick up all dependencies on included files but, at the time make dep is
run, generated files have not been created yet. make dep issues lots
of spurious warning and error messages. The 2.5 makefile rewrite fixes
the design. This is not a failure condition, make dep keeps going.

I have no idea why udf_fs_sb.h includes versions.h, it does not use it.
I will follow up with the UDF group.
