For one thing, it means you can do :

obj-$(CONFIG_OPROFILE) += oprofile.o
oprofile-y := $(DRIVER_OBJS) init.o
oprofile-$(CONFIG_X86_LOCAL_APIC) += nmi_int.o op_model_athlon.o \
                                           op_model_ppro.o op_model_p4.o

which is very nice. I don't know why they're installed like that though.
