kbuild: show hint if subdir-y/m is used to visit module Makefile
Since commit ff9b45c55b26 ("kbuild: modpost: read modules.order instead of $(MODVERDIR)/*.mod"), a module is no longer built in the following pattern: [Makefile] subdir-y := some-module [some-module/Makefile] obj-m := some-module.o You cannot write Makefile this way in upstream because modules.order is not correctly generated. subdir-y is used to descend to a sub-directory that builds tools, device trees, etc. For external modules, the modules order does not matter. So, the Makefile above was known to work. I believe the Makefile should be re-written as follows: [Makefile] obj-m := some-module/ [some-module/Makefile] obj-m := some-module.o However, people will have no idea if their Makefile suddenly stops working. In fact, I received questions from multiple people. Show a warning for a while if obj-m is specified in a Makefile visited by subdir-y or subdir-m. I touched the %/ rule to avoid false-positive warnings for the single target.
