From: Martin Kelly <martin@martingkelly.com>

Currently in a number of Makefiles, we clobber the CC, LD, and/or STRIP env vars
when cross-compiling, which breaks any additional flags that might be set (such
as sysroot). This easily shows up by using, for instance, a Yocto SDK.

Fix this by more carefully overriding the flags in the way that the perf
Makefile does.

This patch does not fix cross-compile for all the tools (some have other bugs),
but it does appear to fix it for these:

- cgroup
- freefall
- gpio
- hv
- iio
- leds
- spi
- vm
- wmi

This patch touches multiple subsystems, and there doesn't appear to be a global
tools maintainer, so I sent this to linux-embedded kernel-janitors, and
linux-kbuild. Please let me know if there is a better place for it.

I think you will have better luck if you go subsystem by subsystem, e.g.
send gpio change to gpio maintainer, usb change to usb maintainer and so
on.  In addition, you'll want to try and understand/explain why those
lines were added in the 1st place and how it won't break other existing
use cases by removing them.  Maybe "git blame" will help for that...

I can send patches subsystem-by-subsystem, but this patch fixes a single 
bug that applies to many Makefiles. It fixes it by putting the correct 
logic into tools/scripts/Makefile.include, which each Makefiles 
includes. If I do this subsystem-by-subsystem, we will just duplicate 
these lines into every Makefile:

+$(call allow-override,CC,$(CROSS_COMPILE)gcc)
+$(call allow-override,AR,$(CROSS_COMPILE)ar)
+$(call allow-override,LD,$(CROSS_COMPILE)ld)
+$(call allow-override,CXX,$(CROSS_COMPILE)g++)
+$(call allow-override,CXX,$(CROSS_COMPILE)strip)

We could do this, but it's a lot of code duplication and means that 
anyone making a new Makefile must also copy the lines or their Makefile 
will have this bug. Since the bug fix generically applies everywhere, I 
think it's most correct for it to go into the common Makefile.

If there is really no maintainer for the tools/scripts/Makefile.include 
file, then maybe I have to send subsystem-by-subsystem, but that seems 
less than ideal.

I do understand why the CC = $(CROSS_COMPILE)gcc lines exist; it is to 
enable cross-compile when you set the $CROSS_COMPILE env var and to use 
native gcc when that is not set. The bug is that if you already have $CC 
set to your cross-compiler (which is what the Yocto SDK and other 
toolchains do), then most of your command-line gets clobbered. Here's an 
example from an ARM Yocto SDK I have:

$ echo $CC
arm-poky-linux-gnueabi-gcc -march=armv7-a -mfpu=neon -mfloat-abi=hard 
-mcpu=cortex-a8 
--sysroot=/home/martin/src/poky/build/sdk/sysroots/cortexa8hf-neon-poky-linux-gnueabi

$ echo $CROSS_COMPILE
arm-poky-linux-gnueabi-

$ echo ${CROSS_COMPILE}gcc
arm-poky-linux-gnueabi-gcc

Although arm-poky-linux-gnueabi-gcc is a cross-compiler, we've lost many 
build flags, notably --sysroot, which enables us to find the right 
libraries to link against. Without this change, I get this kind of error 
in all the affected Makefiles:

martin@cascade:~/src/linux/tools$ make iio
[snip]
iio_event_monitor.c:18:10: fatal error: unistd.h: No such file or directory
  #include <unistd.h>
           ^~~~~~~~~~

This occurs because unistd.h is in the sysroot, but we've dropped the 
--sysroot flag:
$ find /home/martin/src/poky/build/sdk/sysroots -path 
'*/usr/include/unistd.h'
/home/martin/src/poky/build/sdk/sysroots/cortexa8hf-neon-poky-linux-gnueabi/usr/include/unistd.h

With the change, we add do CC = $(CROSS_COMPILE)gcc if and only if CC is 
not already set. I'm happy to add all these details to the commit 
description.

Urg, I accidentally sent to kernel-kbuild instead of linux-kbuild, 
changed now. It appears that past changes to 
tools/scripts/Makefile.include have been handled by linux-kbuild and 
often Masahiro Yamada.

Perhaps the best sequence here is to send a patch to kbuild adding the 
call-override function and calls to it to the main common Makefile. Then 
I can send individual subsystem patches dropping the individual CC = 
lines and similar. It will be 13 patches instead of 1 but will 
eventually result in the same thing.

Paul, any thoughts?

That is probably a step in the right direction.  I contribute to yocto
on a regular basis and hence am sympathetic to these frustrating SDK
type issues.  But after a quick scan of this patch it wasn't obvious to
me that existing behaviour was preserved, or that it would be a pain to
separate it into chunks. (key word here being "quick")

So I'd recommend updating the commit log, and adding a Cc: line for the
maintainers of each subsystem below, and then if nobody complains you
might get akpm to pick it up as he does for other patches w/o a clear
maintainer or subsystem.

P.

Thanks, I have done so. I also contribute to Yocto and indeed, SDK 
issues are all-to-common.

That sounds good.
