[Buildroot] [PATCH 1 of 6 v4] infra: consistently use double dollar signs inside inner-xxx-targets

Thomas De Schampheleire patrickdepinguin at gmail.com
Wed Jun 11 19:12:24 UTC 2014


The inner-xxx-targets in the buildroot package infrastructures are
evaluated using $(eval) which causes variable references to be a bit
different than in regular make code. As we want most references to be
expanded only at the time of the $(eval) we should not use standard
references $(VAR) but rather use double dollar signs $$(VAR). This includes
function references like $(call), $(subst), etc. The only exception is the
reference to pkgdir/pkgname and numbered variables, which are parameters to
the inner block: $(1), $(2), etc.

This patch introduces consistent usage of double-dollar signs throughout the
different inner-xxx-targets blocks.

In some cases, this would potentially cause circular references, in
particular when the value of HOST_FOO_VAR would be obtained from the
corresponding FOO_VAR if HOST_FOO_VAR is not defined. In these cases, a test
is added to check for a host package (the only case where such constructions
are relevant; these are not circular).

Benefits of these changes are:
- behavior of variables is now again as expected. For example, setting
  $(2)_VERSION = virtual in pkg-virtual.mk will effectively work, while
  originally it would cause very odd results.

- The output of 'make printvars' is now much more useful. This target shows
  the value of all variables, and the expression that led to that value.
  However, if the expression was coming from an inner-xxx-targets block, and
  was using single dollar signs, it would show in printvars as
    VAR = value (value)
  while if double dollar signs are used, it would effectively look like
    VAR = value (actual expression)
  as is intended.
  This improvement is for example effective for FOO_DL_VERSION, FOO_RAWNAME,
  FOO_SITE_METHOD and FOO_MAKE.

The correctness of this patch has been verified using 'make printvars',
'make manual' and 'make legal-info' before and after applying this patch,
and comparing the output.

v4: rebase

v3: (rebase + implement comments from Arnout)
- add comment to manual.mk and fs/common.mk
- replace the $(origin) stuff with if ($(4),host) instead
- revert changes to outer targets
- remove comment in legal info ('double dollar signs are really needed
  here because...')
- revert changes to caseconvert-helper

v2:
- extend change to manual, fs/common and caseconvert-helper (Yann)
- increase consistency by also changing $(Q) in $$(Q) and the UPPERCASE
  calls in the xxx-targets (outer) block. (Yann)

Note: the 'make -qp' suggestion by Arnout produced a lot of output due to
the fact that the variables are now no longer expanded early. For printvars
I could easily work around this by patching it to only print the value, not
the rule, and then comparing. For 'make -qp' it is not possible. I did not
take on the task of comparing these files of 500k lines, but am trusting the
output of printvars along with the comparison of legal-info and manual
output.
