[bug #33034] "Makefile:23: *** mixed implicit and normal rules. Stop." for Linux kernel out of source builds

Update of bug #33034 (project make):
Status: None => Not A Bug
Open/Closed: Open => Closed
Follow-up Comment #3:
This is an intentional change. See the GNU make NEWS file:
* WARNING: Backward-incompatibility!
In previous versions of make it was acceptable to list one or more explicit
targets followed by one or more pattern targets in the same rule and it
worked "as expected". However, this was not documented as acceptable and
you listed any explicit targets AFTER the pattern targets, the entire rule
would be mis-parsed. This release removes this ability completely: make
will generate an error message if you mix explicit and pattern targets in
the same rule.
You must split these rules into two rules: one for the pattern and one for the
explicit targets. The Linux kernel source has already been modified in this
way (in newer kernels).
