kernel_dir option in meson build is equivalent to RTE_KERNELDIR in make
system, for cross-compilation case, users would specify it as local
kernel src dir like

/<user local dir>/target-arm_glibc/linux-arm/linux-4.19.81/

Current meson build would fail to compile kernel module if user specify
kernel_dir as above, this patch fixes this issue.

Hi Xiaolong,

Nack from me. It's just an incorrect revert of my fix.
Kernel modules will be installed in wrong directory, just check install_dir
parameter in kni/meson.build and igb_uio/meson.build.

Hi, Igor

Thanks for the feedback.

Is there any convention that we must install kernel modules to which directory?
And what about for cross compilation case? 

Current issue is that if I specify kernel_dir as one local linux src dir in meson_options.txt,
meson build would fail to compile kernel modules while setting RTE_KERNELDIR='/<xxx>/build_dir/target-x86_64_glibc/linux-x86_64/linux-4.19.81/'
before make works fine. Is there any subtlety I have missed?

Thanks,
Xiaolong

We should at least install it into /lib/modules/kernel-version. For
convenience, dpdk modules are installed into
/lib/modules/kernel-version/extra/dpdk.
In the cross-compilation case, you can use DEST_DIR to set some prefix.

I don't really see the issue here. The description clearly says that
headers must be in $kernel_dir/build which is usually a symlink
to /usr/src/linux-headers-kernel-version.
Just set kernel_dir correctly and there won't be compilation failure.

I think for cross-compilation case, user should be allowed to specify any kernel
src dir (it doesn't have to be /lib/modules/kernel-version) in his local system 
as kernel_dir that doesn't contain the build dir, in this case, current meson
build will skip kernel module compilation.

Thanks,

I don't think we can take this change as the default, since the previous
fix was put in for good reason.

However, perhaps we can attempt to support both, using the checks below for
"make kernelversion" in kernel/linux/meson.build. We can attempt using the
directory with /build (as now) and then if that fails attempt without it (or
vice versa).

Thanks for the suggestion, I think it works for checking phase, and we still
some tricks for "make -C <kernel_dir>" to let it works for both cases, I'll try
to figure out.

kernel_dir option in meson build is equivalent to RTE_KERNELDIR in make
system, for cross-compilation case, users would specify it as local
kernel src dir like

/<user local dir>/target-arm_glibc/linux-arm/linux-4.19.81/

Current meson build would fail to compile kernel module if user specify
kernel_dir as above, this patch fixes this issue.

After a second thought, I think it'd be better that we unify the meaning of
kernel_dir for both cases, it should be aligned with make's RTE_KERNELDIR 
variable that specify the directory contains kernel src code (or header), then
we don't need to distinguish these 2 cases in check (make kernelversion) phase,
we just need to assign different install dirs,

For normal case:

kernel_dir=/lib/modules/<kernel_version>/build
install_dir=/lib/modules/<kernel_version>/extra/dpdk

For cross compilation case:

kernel_dir=<Any kernel src dir specified by user>
install_dir=<Any kernel src dir specified by user>/extra/dpdk

What do you think (I've sent v2 according to above description)?

Thanks,
Xiaolong

The downside of what you propose is that it will break any builds which are
already working by passing in the base kerneldir folder as parameter. That
case needs to be kept working, so you cannot force the user to pass in the
path with /build on the end.

We need to handle both, but they need to be handled without breaking the
currently working case where we pass in /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/ as the
kerneldir path.

So you mean we should allow user to specify both /lib/modules/$(uname -r) and
/lib/modules/$(uname -r)/build as kernel_dir for normal case?

That is up to you, but we need to still allow the former case so as to
avoid breaking backward compatibility for existing build setups. Therefore
I suggest supporting both is recommended.

kernel_dir option in meson build is equivalent to RTE_KERNELDIR in make
system, for cross-compilation case, users would specify it as local
kernel src dir like

/<user local dir>/target-arm_glibc/linux-arm/linux-4.19.81/

Current meson build would fail to compile kernel module if user specify
kernel_dir as above, this patch fixes this issue.

After this change, for normal build case, user can specify
/lib/modules/<kernel_version> or /lib/modules/<kernel_version>/build as
kernel_dir. For cross compilation case, user can specify any directory
that contains kernel source code as the kernel_dir.

V3 changes:

   /lib/modules/<kernel_version>/build as kernel_dir to keep backward
   compatibility

V2 changes:

1. handle both normal and cross-compilation cases

The convention used by upstream and all distros is that kernel headers
are in <version>/build. Why can't the cross compilation case also
follow this convention, rather than adding complications to the
downstream build system?

Yes, cross-compilation can follow this convention, but one common case is that
users download and put kernel src (the same kernel that's running in the target machine)
to one arbitrary dir, he then use this dir as kernel_dir to build kernel modules,
it's extra burden for users to create extra build dir to hold the kernel headers.

Thanks,
Xiaolong

As part of the build of the kernel, do you not do a "modules_install" step,
which should set up things correctly for later builds?
