Yes, that should work. Could we also move the CE objs to ce-obj-$() and put

ifneq ($(ce-obj-y)$(ce-obj-m),)
if <as check>
obj-y += $(ce-obj-y)
obj-m += $(ce-obj-m)
else
$(warning ...)
endif
endif

around it so you only get the warning if you have selected any of these modules?

In any case, I strongly prefer to leave the .S files themselves alone if at all possible

Ard.
