We use ccflags-$(CONFIG_HWMON_DEBUG_CHIP) for the debug
message in drivers/hwmon, but the DEBUG flag will not pass to
the subdirectory.

Considering CONFIG_HWMON_DEBUG_CHIP intends to have DEBUG
recursively in driver/hwmon. It will be clearer
to use subdir-ccflags-* instead of ccflags-* to inherit
the debug settings from Kconfig when traversing subdirectories,
and it will avoid omittance of DEBUG define when debug messages
added in the subdirectories.

The above paragraph doesn't add clarity and may as well be dropped.
On the other side, the commit message still doesn't mention that
pr_debug depends on DEBUG, which I am sure many people don't know
or remember. This is the prime reason why this patch is acceptable,
so it most definitely needs to be mentioned here.
