[PATCH 5.4 350/367] perf build: Update build rule for generated files

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


5.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Namhyung Kim <namhyung@xxxxxxxxxx>

[ Upstream commit 7822a8913f4c51c7d1aff793b525d60c3384fb5b ]

The bison and flex generate C files from the source (.y and .l)
files.  When O= option is used, they are saved in a separate directory
but the default build rule assumes the .C files are in the source
directory.  So it might read invalid file if there are generated files
from an old version.  The same is true for the pmu-events files.

For example, the following command would cause a build failure:

  $ git checkout v6.3
  $ make -C tools/perf  # build in the same directory

  $ git checkout v6.5-rc2
  $ mkdir build  # create a build directory
  $ make -C tools/perf O=build  # build in a different directory but it
                                # refers files in the source directory

Let's update the build rule to specify those cases explicitly to depend
on the files in the output directory.

Note that it's not a complete fix and it needs the next patch for the
include path too.
