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?
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.
