It seems you don;t use the kernel's Makefile to build your modules,

Note that disabling this is strongly discouraged as the "annoying
extra string" is extremely useful - it allows for exact version
ideltification of the kernel you are using, including the fact that
you have modified but uncommited files in your tree.
