Problems compiling systemtap module with kernel-devel on rawhide

The recent vintages of kernel-devel (e.g. 2.6.17-1.2356.fc6) on i386 and x86_64 are causing problems building the systemtap module. This bug affect any modules compiled outside the kernel build. There is already a bug filed for this on the Red Hat Bugzilla, #197220.

For something trivial like

/usr/bin/stap -vv -e 'probe begin { log ("hello world") }'

End up getting the following when trying to compile the resulting C code of the systemtap module:

Running make -C "/lib/modules/2.6.17-1.2356.fc6/build" M="/tmp/stapfSW0Zy" modules V=1
make: Entering directory `/usr/src/kernels/2.6.17-1.2356.fc6-x86_64'
Makefile:452: *** kernel configuration not valid - run 'make prepare' in /usr/src/kernels/2.6.17-1.2356.fc6-x86_64 to update it. Stop.
make: Leaving directory `/usr/src/kernels/2.6.17-1.2356.fc6-x86_64'
Pass 4: compiled C into "stap_20491.ko" in 190usr/230sys/412real ms.
Pass 4: compilation failed. Try again with more '-v' (verbose) options.
Running rm -rf /tmp/stapfSW0Zy
