No, 3ce9e53e788881da0d5f3912f80e0dd6b501f304 was later and reverted
unintended changes in fe04ddf7c2910362f3817c8156e41cbd6c0ee35d. You
should probably combine the two.
See these stable commits:
3.2: 0767530 kbuild: Do not package /boot and /lib in make tar-pkg
3.6: 4bb50fa kbuild: Do not package /boot and /lib in make tar-pkg
3.6: 0a7f602 kbuild: Fix accidental revert in commit fe04ddf
Never attribute to conspiracy what can adequately be explained by stupidity.
