The problem is that tristate symbol represent three values.
=n => CONFIG_SYMBOL is undefined
=y => CONFIG_SYMBOL is defined
=m => COMFIG_SYMBOL_MODULE is defined

The function split_config does not take into account the
different values and 'fixing' this in fixdep is wrong.
Because fixdep does not know if the variable is a tristate symbol or not
so it can either blindly remove _MODULE (your patch)
or each time it encounters _MODULE check for a symbol with and
without _MODULE.
The better fix is to teach the split_config function that
for tristate symbols two files shall be created in the include/config
hirachy. So for apm this gets:
include/config/apm.h
include/config/apm/module.h

This will make kconfig behave correct the day that someone add a config
symbol with a _MODULE suffix.

I will follow-up with two patches that implement the changes to split_config.
The first is a pure code refactoring preparing for the second patch.

Roman - please ack/nack these this since they touches kconfig backend.
