[PATCH] dtc: Use quotes to include header files
From: Chris Packham
Date: Mon Dec 15 2014 - 21:20:25 EST
Currently in arch and driver code that needs early access to the
flattened device tree it is necessary to add specific CFLAGS so that
when scripts/dtc/libfdt/libfdt.h is included the C preprocessor is able
to locate the libfdt versions of libfdt_env.h and fdt.h without
generating an error.
We already provide an alternative linux-specific
version of libfdt_env.h and directly include scripts/dtc/libfdt/fdt.h
so the inclusion by scripts/dtc/libfdt/libfdt.h is a no-op thanks to the
By using quotes in scripts/dtc/libfdt/libfdt.h it picks up fdt.h and
libfdt_env.h from the source directory without needing to add CFLAGS for
the sources that happen to include linux/libfdt.h.

This probably should come via git://git.jdl.com/software/dtc.git however
this appears to be inaccessible at the moment. Is this still the
canonical source for the device tree compiler and libfdt or has it been
moved? How much deviation from the canonical source are we prepared to
live with in the kernel?
This came up on the arm-LKML. Basically in the name of backwards
compatibility I need to add a .dt_fixup to add some required nodes to
the flattened device tree prior to the tree being un-flattened and
processed. This is a trick powerpc makes use of fairly extensively and
there are a few other instances of this.
For the files that include linux/libfdt.h we currently also have to
specify additional CFLAGS to satisfy the CPP.
$ git grep '<linux/libfdt.h>'
$ git grep -e '-I.*dtc/libfdt'
arch/mips/cavium-octeon/Makefile:CFLAGS_octeon-platform.o = -I$(src)/../../../scripts/dtc/libfdt
arch/mips/cavium-octeon/Makefile:CFLAGS_setup.o = -I$(src)/../../../scripts/dtc/libfdt
arch/mips/mti-sead3/Makefile:CFLAGS_sead3-setup.o = -I$(src)/../../../scripts/dtc/libfdt
arch/powerpc/kernel/Makefile:CFLAGS_prom.o = -I$(src)/../../../scripts/dtc/libfdt
drivers/firmware/efi/libstub/Makefile:CFLAGS_fdt.o += -I$(srctree)/scripts/dtc/libfdt/
drivers/of/Makefile:CFLAGS_fdt.o = -I$(src)/../../scripts/dtc/libfdt
drivers/of/Makefile:CFLAGS_fdt_address.o = -I$(src)/../../scripts/dtc/libfdt
lib/Makefile: $(eval CFLAGS_$(file) = -I$(src)/../scripts/dtc/libfdt))
Simply by switching to using quotes we can avoid having this extra step.
Assuming that this patch is acceptable a follow on clean up would be to
remove the instances of CFLAGS_... listed above.
