Noi, it's not. This is just another symptom...

Something is awfully corrupted in your Linux kernel tree. Files must
be seriously messed up, for example as the result of storing them on
some Windoze file system, or using a Windoze environment to copy

Please throw away  the  whole  tree,  and  download  and  install  it
completely  from  scratch. Make sure only to use tools that are known
not to mess with file formats etc. (i. e. use only Linux tools),  and
don't  use  any  file  systems  that have such issues (i. e. use only
standard Linux file systems).

Best regards,

Wolfgang Denk
