Subject: Re: [dpdk-dev] [PATCH] kernel/linux: fix kernel dir for meson
Date: Mon, 2 Dec 2019 12:16:21 +0300

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.
