Since the bump to 4.7, Xen fails to build because of a double definition
of __OBJECT_FILE__. This is due to (who would have guessed) the weirdness
of their buildsystem.

Fix that with a dirty hack: undefine the macro before defining it.

+Subject: [PATCH] xen/Rules.mk: fix build with CFLAGS from environment
+When CFLAGS are passed from the environment, the first-level make
+invocation will append -D__OBJECT_FILE__ to it, then call a second
+make invocation, that will have those new CFLAGS in its environment,
+but will also append -D__OBJECT_FILE__ to those.
+Then, the compiler fails because __OBEJECT_FILE__ is defined twice.
+Just undefine it before defining it again, as a *workaround* to this
