C++ libraries interfacing to C APIs might sometimes need some glue logic more easily written in C. Allow a C++ library to also contain 0 or more C objects.
Also fix rules for both C and C++ shared libraries:
- C++ shared libraries depended on .c instead of .cc files
- Rules were referenced as -objs instead of the intended -cobjs and -cxxobjs following the pattern from hostprogs*.

How is this patch related to the rest of this series?
This is just my (likely naive) way I to get what I had working using autotools in the Github version of KTF) translated into something comparable using kbuild only. We need to build a shared library consisting of a few C++ files and a very simple C file, and a couple of simple binaries, and the rule in there does seem to take .c files and subject them to the C++ compiler, which makes this difficult to achieve?
Looking at the diff stat of the cover-letter, the rest of this patch series is touching only Documentation/ and tools/testing/kselftests/.
So, this one is unused by the rest of the changes, isn't it? Am I missing something?
This patch breaks GCC-plugins. Did you really compile-test this patch before the submission?
Sorry for my ignorance here: I ran through the kernel build and installed the resulting kernel on a VM that I used to test this, if that's what you are asking about?
Do I need some unusual .config options or run a special make target to trigger the problem you see?
I used a recent Fedora config with default values for new options, and ran the normal default make target (also with O=) and make selftests to test the patch itself.
I just built allmodconfig for arm.
(The 0-day bot tests allmodconfig for most of architectures, so you may receive error reports anyway.)
With your patch, I got the following:

Ok, I see!
I'll recall this target and look into it!
Ok, so I have tried installing the arm-linux-gnueabihf cross compiler and compiled the kernel for arm, but allmodconfig does not seem to enable any GCC plugins per default even on ARM and I haven't been able to figure out how to enable any.
A plain allmodconfig generated config compiles perfectly for me both native x86 and w/arm cross compile, but it doesn't seem to enable any gcc plugins.
Anyway, maybe I am getting this wrong anyway: Having played with cross compile, it starts to become clear to me that HOSTCC rules might not be the right rules to use, as it will generate host user land binaries as opposed to target user land binaries (in a cross compile world obviously these differ)
Now, I started off with using the rules in the selftests makefiles for this, but they do not play that well with kernel module building. My goal is to be able to do both user land and kernel module **target** compiles from the same subtree. Any hints on how to accomplish this appreciated :-)
