This fixes a Compile time Warning, whenever a static library is linked
into a kernel module. MODPOST tries to look for a ".<modulename>.cmd"
file to look for its dependencies, but that file doesn't exist or get
generated for static libraries.

Thanks for fixing the wordwrap.

Here is the changelog:
This fixes a Compile time Warning, whenever a static library is linked
into a kernel module. MODPOST tries to look for a ".<modulename>.cmd"
file to look for its dependencies, but that file doesn't exist or get
generated for static libraries.

Many Thanks,
Ashutosh
