Re: [XEN PATCH v5 03/16] xen/build: use new $(c_flags) and $(a_flags) instead of $(CFLAGS)

In a later patch ("xen/build: have the root Makefile generates the
CFLAGS), we want to generate the CFLAGS in xen/Makefile, then export
it and have Rules.mk use a CFLAGS from the environment variables. That
changes the flavor of the CFLAGS and flags intended for one target
(like -D__OBJECT_FILE__ and -M%) gets propagated and duplicated. So we
start by moving such flags out of $(CFLAGS) and into $(c_flags) which
is to be modified by only Rules.mk.

__OBJECT_FILE__ is only used by arch/x86/mm/*.c files, so having it in
$(c_flags) is enough, we don't need it in $(a_flags).

For include/Makefile and as-insn we can keep using CFLAGS, but since
it doesn't have -M* flags anymore there is no need to filter them out.

The XEN_BUILD_EFI tests in arch/x86/Makefile was filtering out
CFLAGS-y, but according to dd40177c1bc8 ("x86-64/EFI: add CFLAGS to
check compile"), it was done to filter out -MF. CFLAGS doesn't
have those flags anymore, so no filtering is needed.

This is inspired by the way Kbuild generates CFLAGS for each targets.
