[PATCH] kbuild: fix dependency generation
Commit 2e3646e51b2d6415549b310655df63e7e0d7a080 changed the way the split config tree is built, but failed to also adjust fixdep accordingly - if changing a config option from or to m, files referencing the respective CONFIG_..._MODULE (but not the corresponding CONFIG_...) didn't get rebuilt. The problem is that trisate symbol are represent with three different symbols: SYMBOL=n => no symbol defined SYMBOL=y => CONFIG_SYMBOL defined to '1' SYMBOL=m => CONFIG_SYMBOL_MODULE defined to '1' But conf_split_config do not distingush between the =y and =m case, so only the =y case is honoured. This is fixed in fixdep so when a CONFIG symbol with _MODULE is found we skip that part and only look for the CONFIG_SYMBOL version.
