It's not tied to obj-bin-y, but rather to the .init.o rule, but yes, the
problem would possibly affect any such object. My problem is that
so far I wasn't able to think of a (clean and maintenance free) way
to force in a -D for those very files, since the compilation step is
the same as for "normal" .o-s. Hence, rather than waiting for
people to start asking what the resulting error message means, I
thought we should at least fix it in the place where the problem
was observed in reality (which happened to me when I put the
new bits on a system that I don't update that regularly).
