According to the Wiki at https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Kernel/Upgrade
Code:
make modules_prepare
is executed before the new kernel is compiled. But it isn't clear to me if
Code:
emerge --ask @module-rebuild
is also to be run before the kernel is compiled or after?
Thanks

From theWiki
Quote:
The modules_prepare step is not required if building an entire kernel as this function is done as part of the standard process.

Code:
emerge --ask @module-rebuild
is performed after the kernel has been built.
