Hmm, I have not observed this.

My expectation is, it should work like this:

When scripts/basic/fixdep is interrupted (or fail due to any reason),
partially written *.o.cmd is left over. So, having incomplete *.o.cmd
files is expectation.

When .DELETE_ON_ERROR is specified, GNU Make is supposed to
automatically delete the target on any error.
(If it is interrupted, it should exit with code 130)

On the next invocation of Make, Kbuild will not include .*.o.cmd files
whose corresponding *.o files do not exist.





When you got the corrupted drivers/gpu/drm/.drm_blend.o.cmd,
didn't you see the log
Deleting file 'drivers/gpu/drm/drm_blend.o' ?



If it works as I expect, the log should look like follows:
(I marked  the lines with '<---- Deleting')
