I agree. Any suggestions for a generic way to solve this? Perhaps
something like this in scripts/

template_rule = $(obj)/$(tmpl)%.c: $(src)/$(tmpl).c ; @cp $$(^) $$(@)
$(eval $(foreach tmpl,$(TEMPLATES),$(template_rule)))

so that arch/arm64/crypto/Makefile only has to define

TEMPLATES += aes-glue

so that all dependencies on aes-glueXXX.c are satisfied by aes-glue.c?

BTW, while looking into this issue, I noticed something else that is strange:
after touch'ing sha1-ce-glue.c in arch/arm64/crypto and re-executing
'make V=2', this is what I get

make[1]: Entering directory `/home/ard/linux-arm64-build'
  CHK     include/config/kernel.release

  CHK     kernel/config_data.h
  LINK    vmlinux - due to: arch/arm64/crypto/built-in.o

IOW, unrelated object files are detected as being out of date. (This
is after running make mrproper, and with the aes-glue-% related rules
and definitions commented out, just to make sure this is not related
to the issue you have identified)

Any ideas?
