This is causing "LD vmlinux" once every two times even without any
modifications. This is the same bug fixed in commit 92a4728608a8
("x86/boot: Fix if_changed build flip/flop bug").  We cannot use two
"if_changed" in one target. Fix this build bug by merging two commands
into one function.

The code looks OK, but you should split this
into two patches, for arm64 and x86,
and then add Fixes: for each of them.

Thanks, I'll split and add the tags.
