It is not old data perse. I edited those files. They have been opened, and
written back. But it will shuffle every bit of data in those files, and
I'll find sourcecode in the object file, *.d files, etc. The source file
itself is mostly garbled as well.

I can see if I can come up with a module as simple as possible to
reproduce this. (This is still a while(1); in kernel essentially, with
a couple of seconds between the hang and the compile/install cycle)

If you're interested, let me know, and I'll see if I can make a test-case
for you.
