Subject: [RFC] xen/arm: build: add missed dependency for head.S
Date: Fri,  3 Jun 2016 18:07:13 +0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20160603100713.22378-1-Wei.Chen@linaro.org> (raw)

When we update the header files that had been included in head.S.
The build system would not re-compile the head.S. Because in the
build rules, the dependencies are setting to .*.d (eg. DEPS = .*.d)
files in the same folder as Makefile.

But head.S is very special, it was used by the Makefile in the parent
folder: "ALL_OBJS := $(TARGET_SUBARCH)/head.o".

In this case, the build system could not find the dependency in DEPS.
When we update the header files, the build system is unware of this
update. If we re-build the Xen without doing make clean or touching
the head.S, the build system will not recompile the head.S.

Signed-off-by: Wei Chen <Wei.Chen@linaro.org>
In my mind, the better way to fix this bug is converting the DEPS from
ALL_OBJS. But I am afraid of the impact. I am not sure whether there 
are some dependencies are not generated from obj files.
