  * resolution:  => upstream


 The error occurs because the ebuild illegally displays information to
 stdout during the metadata phase. That, in turn, happens because linux-
 mod.eclass checks EBUILD_PHASE against 'depend' to see whether it should
 be quiet, but PMS doesn't guarantee that EBUILD_PHASE will be set to that.
 So the fix is either to stop calling horrible functions in global scope,
 or to fix qout in linux-mod. Or preferably both.
