2013-04-08buildtar: Add ARCH to the archive nameBorislav Petkov
When dealing with multiple sub-arches (like 32- and 64-bit on x86, for example) generating a bunch of kernel tar archives with the same name but for different sub-arches could get confusing and error-prone. Also, the build process could overwrite otherwise unrelated builds and you probably don't want that. So, add the architecture to the archive name for more clarity and less shoot-yourself-in-the-foot practices. Signed-off-by: Borislav Petkov <bp@suse.de> Signed-off-by: Michal Marek <mmarek@suse.cz>

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/mmarek/kbuild Pull kbuild changes from Michal Marek: "The main part of kbuild for v3.7 contains: - Fix for scripts/Makefile.modpost to not choke on a '.ko' substring in the build directory path - Two warning fixes (modpost and main Makefile) - __compiletime_error works also with gcc 4.3 - make tar{gz,bz2,xz}-pkg uses default compression settings instead of saving as many bytes as possible (this should actually be in the misc branch, I don't know why I applied it here)." * 'kbuild' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/mmarek/kbuild: compiler-gcc4.h: correct verion check for __compiletime_error modpost: Permit .GCC.command.line sections Kbuild: use normal compression settings for tar*-pkg scripts/Makefile.modpost: error in finding modules from .mod files. kbuild: Remove useless warning while appending KCFLAGS
2012-09-27Kbuild: use normal compression settings for tar*-pkgAndi Kleen
For large kernel configurations (like a distribution kernel) targz-pkg takes a quite long time to just do the compression. I clocked it at 15+mins for a SUSE kernel like config on a fast system. And tarxz and bzip2 are even slower. The main reason is that the script that is doing the taring sets the highest compression level (-9). When I change it to just use the defaults the gzip time for the same kernel goes down to ~3 mins. I haven't tested xz and bzip, but I expect those to be much faster too. I'm not willing to wait that long for a small compression gain. So just change the script to use the defaults.

2012-09-27kbuild: Do not package /boot and /lib in make tar-pkgMichal Marek
There were reports of users destroying their Fedora installs by a kernel tarball that replaces the /lib -> /usr/lib symlink. Let's remove the toplevel directories from the tarball to prevent this from happening.

2009-12-12scripts/package: tar-pkg: use tar --owner=rootMichal Marek
Use the --owner= and --group= options to make sure the entries in the built tar file are owned by root. Without this change, a careless sysadmin using the tar-pkg target can easily end up installing a kernel that is writable by the unprivileged user account used to build the kernel. Test that these options are understood before using them so that non-GNU versions of tar can still be used if the operator is appropriately cautious.

2006-01-01kbuild: tar-pkg with out-out-tree buildingJan-Benedict Glaw
Fix out-of-tree builds for the tar-pkg targets When I wrote the buildtar script, I didn't even think about out-of-tree builds because I didn't use these back then. This patch throughoutly uses ${objtree} instead of `pwd`. Also, the kernel version is no longer manually built. Instead, it will properly use $KERNELRELEASE . Installing modules is only done if CONFIG_MODULES is set. Signed-off-by: Jan-Benedict Glaw <jbglaw@lug-owl.de> Signed-off-by: Sam Ravnborg <sam@ravnborg.org>
