kbuild: remove command line interface LDFLAGS_MODULE from makefiles.txt
Documentation/kbuild/makefiles.txt lists variables used in Makefile whereas Documentation/kbuild/kbuild.txt describes user assignable parameters given via environments or the command line. LDFLAGS_MODULE is a command line interface, so it should be dropped from makefiles.txt. Some lines below in this file, it is clearly explained that KBUILD_LDFLAGS_MODULE is the right one for the internal use: KBUILD_LDFLAGS_MODULE Options for $(LD) when linking modules $(KBUILD_LDFLAGS_MODULE) is used to add arch-specific options used when linking modules. This is often a linker script. From commandline LDFLAGS_MODULE shall be used (see kbuild.txt). Then, kbuild.txt explains LDFLAGS_MODULE, like follows: LDFLAGS_MODULE -------------------------------------------------- Additional options used for $(LD) when linking modules.
