"files" and "options" are used to determine which source files should be
included and which preprocessor macros should be defined according to
the "device" and "option" lines in the kernel config.

However, as a "beginner of freebsd kernel", I would recommend that you
spend your time reading (and writing or modifying) source code, not
trying to understand the Makefiles.
