Thomas, All,

On 2019-04-22 22:08 +0200, Thomas Petazzoni spake thusly:

Ithink the NEEDS_FOO options are only interesting when the host package
does not have a kconfig option of its own.

In this case, I think it is correct to do as you did.

If linux did not have a conditional dependency on host-uboot-tools, then
it should be added, rather than add a NEEDS_HOST_UBOOT_TOOLS.
