Sorry, could you please advise more details about how to do it in Makefile?
I tried below but it looks like NOT working. multiple definition of module_init() error reported.

obj-$(CONFIG_MXC_CLK_SCU) := clk-imx.o
clk-imx-y += clk-scu.o clk-lpcg-scu.o
clk-imx-$(CONFIG_CLK_IMX8QXP) += clk-imx8qxp.o clk-imx8qxp-lpcg.o

Thanks,
Anson
