Subject[PATCH] kbuild: allow modules to link *.a archives
Date
Since commit 69ea912fda74 ("kbuild: remove unneeded link_multi_deps"),
modules cannot link *.a archives.

I do not see such a usecase in the upstream code, but multiple people
reported this issue, so it seems to be a desired feature for external
modules.

For example, libfoo.a is not linked in the following test case:

obj-m := foo.o
foo-objs := foo1.o libfoo.a

Instead of reverting the offending commit, I wrote slightly cleaner code.
I added multi-m-prereqs to avoid code duplication.
