>> This patch fixes the following use case:

>>  2. Oh no, $(TARGET_DIR) is no longer in sync with $(TARGET_SKELETON)

>> Main changes:
>>  * Always copy $(TARGET_SKELETON) to $(TARGET_DIR).
>>  * If $(TARGET_DIR) needs to be created (i.e. if the directory is
>>   missing), remove stamp files so all currently selected packages will
>>   be reinstalled.
>>  * If $(TARGET_DIR)/lib/modules/ is missing, try to install kernel
>>   modules.
>>
>> Also:
>>  * remove code touching .fakeroot.00000 file (not needed)
>>  * remove code trying to remove CVS and .svn stuff from target skeleton
>>   (not needed)

>> Changes in v2:
>>  * remove gcc stamp file so libgcc_s.so.1 will be copied to TARGET_DIR

Ping ping :-)

Now that the new cycle has opened, any comments on this?

I'd really like to get this functionality in mainline :-)

Best regards,
