Subject: [PATCH] arm64: Make CPU_BIG_ENDIAN depend on !LD_IS_LLD
Date: Mon,  1 Feb 2021 19:24:42 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Similar to commit 28187dc8ebd9 ("ARM: 9025/1: Kconfig: CPU_BIG_ENDIAN
depends on !LD_IS_LLD"), ld.lld does not support aarch64 big endian,
leading to the following build error when CONFIG_CPU_BIG_ENDIAN is

ld.lld: error: unknown emulation: aarch64linuxb

There are not currently plans to implement big endian support for
aarch64 in ld.lld but if it should be supported in the future, this
symbol can depend on the version that first supports it. In the
meantime, prevent this symbol from being selected to avoid these type
of build errors.

While we are here, the indentation of this symbol used spaces since its
introduction in commit a872013d6d03 ("arm64: kconfig: allow
CPU_BIG_ENDIAN to be selected"). Change it to tabs to be consistent with
kernel coding style.
