The above change causes build breakage over a number of ARM builds,
which unfortunately doesn't result in emails from any build system
containing the cause of the failure.

See
https://kernelci.org/build/rmk/branch/for-next/kernel/v5.5-rc1-12-g9a6545e2fc83/

where the failures are reported as:

../arch/arm/boot/compressed/Makefile:87: *** missing separator. Stop.

Thanks.  Patch dropped.
