I think it does. Before this the C_OBJ would be:

	C_OBJ := $(filter-out $(ASM_OBJ),$(OBJECTS))

but after 1/2 it's the same as $(OBJECTS). An earlier iteration of this
did this cleanup "while we're at it" (which I do think makes sense as an
atomic change), but I got the feedback that the cleanup wasn't strictly

But as 1/2 has removed the ability to build those $(ASM_OBJ), as we had
only one of those, I don't think keeping this particular bit of
indirection makes sense.

Of course it doesn't really matter at all, the real change is the
removal of $(ASM_OBJ).

If we do start building *.o files out of *.S files (or other non-*.c)
again we'll need new rules anyway. I think we should just add any such
variables back then, and not keep this small bit of dead husk around.
