2.5.21: kbuild changes broke filenames with commas

With the latest kbuild version in 2.5.21, we are unable to build the
following files:


This is because we end up passing gcc the following argument:


which gets passed to cpp0 as:

        -MD .proc-arm6 7.o.d
                      ^ space, not comma

and therefore cpp0 sees "-MD", ".proc-arm6" and "7.o.d" as separate

There seems to be two solutions:

1. renaming all the above files to contain '_' instead of ','.
2. see if kbuild can use the DEPENDENCIES_OUTPUT environment variable

Kai pointed out that we've already got one exception in kbuild to fixup
the filename for KBUILD_BASENAME (, -> _ and that's not a weird smilie!)
so (1) is probably going to be better, and we can get rid of the special
"comma" handling.

Either way, I plan to rename the two ARM files. That leaves the 53c7,8xx
driver and that block header file.
