It shouldn't, and 'tags' at least shouldn't depend on 'checkbin'
(oldconfig I _believe_ actually invokes HOSTCC and creates other .tmp
files, but I don't have a tree handy).

On make clean, like the other .tmp files that are around at the end of a
kernel compile (kallsyms/modules/maybe something else).

I think so.  We both agree there should be no ppc-specific .tmp files
around after certain make targets.  I'm saying that there's always some
.tmp files generated on every arch for certain targets, and removed with
a clean.  PPC should only create .tmp files (And leave them alone) in
the cases where every arch generates some .tmp files.
