It's not a bug, but it's also not exactly an unsurprising behaviour.
This is the real issue:


obj-$(CONFIG_CRYPTO_LZO) += lzo.o lzo-rle.o

Even though they're built as separate modules, they depend on a single
kconfig symbol. Moreover, lzo-rle uses most of the original lzo
functions (adding just RLE on top), so they should arguably just be
merged. I don't know how receptive upstream is to that idea, but it
seems logical to me.
