No, there shouldn't be any problem. I don't know why we don't hit this
problem without the 'O' make option but nevertheless listing them as
"obj-y" succeeds in all cases. So, I will get this change in next

Ahoy! I didn't know about it. Currently LZO code is a huge mess in

surely look into LZO port they have done (maybe we'll require to
modify it for our purpose).
