Well, okay, there's two ways you can build a single module in a directory
in 2.4, one is to have

O_TARGET := module.o
obj-m := $(O_TARGET)

obj-y := part1.o part2.o

The other is

O_TARGET := something.o
obj-m := module.o

module-objs := part1.o part2.o

(plus a link rule for module.o)

In 2.5, only the second way is legal, so if you're aiming for a compatible
Makefile, you'd use that one, and then O_TARGET shouldn't matter for
"make modules".
