Should there be a ';' semicolon here (and maybe a line-break) between
$(call cmd,ld_ko_o) and $(cmd_ld_ko_o)?

I didn't see this in my x86_64 VM, but on a ppc64le box, I kept getting
really strange build errors that I traced to this line.  Without a
semicolon, the build was trying to run a make command with a linker
command smashed onto the end of it:

  make -f ./arch/powerpc/Makefile.postlink crypto/xts.ko ld -r  -EL -m elf64lppc -T ./scripts/module-common.lds -T ./arch/powerpc/kernel/module.lds --save-restore-funcs  --build-id  -o crypto/xts.ko crypto/xts.o crypto/xts.mod.o


Now, klp-convert looks like will need some ppc64le work as well, as it's
confused about .TOC. symbols:

    CC      samples/livepatch/livepatch-callbacks-busymod.mod.o

  klp-convert: Define KLP_SYMPOS for the symbol: .TOC.
  Valid KLP_SYMPOS for symbol .TOC.:

  [ ... snip listing of all .TOC's across the kernel ... ]

but we can save that for another day.
