Subject: [PATCH] scripts: kconfig: fix HOSTCC call
Date: Thu, 14 Jan 2021 11:02:16 +0100
Message-ID: <> (raw)

The change c0f975af1745391749e4306aa8081b9a4d2cced8 introduces a bug when
HOSTCC contains parameters: the whole command line is treated as the program
name (with spaces in it). Therefore, we have to remove the quotes.

Fixes: c0f975af1745391749e4306aa8081b9a4d2cced8
