I guess the patch doesn't change the situation here.
Mixed case filenames on such filesystems have always been a problem.

This patch just introduces different handling of .s/.S files in
automake. gcc is already treating those files differently so there
shouldn't be a great difference with or without this patch.

I don't think we have to special-case them.
Most things still work but if you want to store several files that
only differ in case then you have to use a case sensitive filesystem.
It's that simple ;).

But perhaps you are right and we should not separate handling of .s and .S.
autodep could be set for assembler files unconditionally.
I haven't yet tested if gcc would be confused by that.
And somebody should take a look at other compilers, too.
