So I guess the current behavior is:

If CONFIG_PCI_DEBUG=y, add -DDEBUG to CFLAGS in the current
directory, but not in any subdirectories

and the behavior after this patch is:

If CONFIG_PCI_DEBUG=y, add -DDEBUG to CFLAGS in the current
directory and any subdirectories

Is that right? That makes sense to me. I wonder if any other places
have this issue?

'git grep "^ccflags.*-DDEBUG"' finds a few cases where subdirectories
use their own debug config options, e.g.,

drivers/i2c/Makefile:ccflags-$(CONFIG_I2C_DEBUG_CORE) := -DDEBUG
drivers/i2c/algos/Makefile:ccflags-$(CONFIG_I2C_DEBUG_ALGO) := -DDEBUG
drivers/i2c/busses/Makefile:ccflags-$(CONFIG_I2C_DEBUG_BUS) := -DDEBUG
drivers/i2c/muxes/Makefile:ccflags-$(CONFIG_I2C_DEBUG_BUS) := -DDEBUG

But some have subdirectories that look like they probably should be
included by using subdir-ccflags, e.g.,

drivers/base/Makefile:ccflags-$(CONFIG_DEBUG_DRIVER) := -DDEBUG
drivers/base/power/Makefile:ccflags-$(CONFIG_DEBUG_DRIVER) := -DDEBUG
# drivers/base/{firmware_loader,regmap,test}/ not included

drivers/hwmon/Makefile:ccflags-$(CONFIG_HWMON_DEBUG_CHIP) := -DDEBUG
# drivers/hwmon/{occ,pmbus}/ not included

drivers/pps/Makefile:ccflags-$(CONFIG_PPS_DEBUG) := -DDEBUG
drivers/pps/clients/Makefile:ccflags-$(CONFIG_PPS_DEBUG) := -DDEBUG
# drivers/pps/generators/ not included

There are many more places that add -DDEBUG to ccflags-y that *don't*
have subdirectories.

I wonder the default should be that we use subdir-ccflags all the
time, and use ccflags only when we actually want different
CONFIG_*_DEBUG options for subdirectories.
