[Buildroot] [PATCH v4] linux-headers: allow use of headers from kernel "package" selected

Karoly Kasza kaszak at gmail.com
Sun Mar 1 17:17:55 UTC 2015


This change makes it possible to use exactly the same sources for both
headers during toolchain building and for kernel building itself, even
if custom kernel is selected.

That way users can be sure that ABI mismatch won't happen between toolchain
and kernel.
