The kbuild syntax could be extended to allow building multiple .o files from
a single .c file. But the need for this feature is so seldom that
people would not recognize the syntax most likely.

Btw. the current solution is already faulty - even with the fix.
There are no support for make C=2 arch/.../crypto/

Therefore - for now the correct fix is to use two wrapper .c files,
and accept this. It will not have the C=2 problem above.
