Peter Crosthwaite - May 22, 2013, 1:50 a.m.
From: Peter Crosthwaite <peter.crosthwaite@xilinx.com>

Currently QEMU provides a local clone of the file libfdt_env.h in
/include. This file is supposed to come with the libfdt package and is
only needed for broken installs of libfdt. Unfortunately, libfdt 1.3
stable is tagged with this bug so we cant realistically remove the
clone. So instead, use a configure time probe - check to see if the
host is already providing this file, and if so, don't use QEMUs
local clone of libfdt.h.

Moved include/libfdt_env.h to include/libfdt/libfdt_env.h so it can be
treated as a special case.

For newer (development) versions of libfdt this probe will succeed and
include/libfdt/libfdt_env.h will simply be ignored.

For older versions -Iinclude/libfdt will be added to CFLAGS.

Manifests as a bug when building QEMU with modern libfdt. The new
version of libfdt does not compile when QEMUs libfdt_env.h takes
precedence over the hosts.

To replicate bug (install latest dtc from src to host and make):
git submodule update --init dtc
cd dtc
git checkout master
make
sudo make install PREFIX=/usr/local
cd ..
./configure --target-list="arm-softmmu" --enable-fdt
make

Hi,

Should we consider removing our builtin version and stick to either
using the hosts or when that fails suggest the submoduled dtc pkg?

Anyway, this patch improves the current situation so OK with me:

I agree that that sounds like a better idea: just add the #include
to our existing fdt probe, and then we'll simply ignore system libfdt
if it's not new enough. The relevant changes got committed to libfdt
git in 2008, after all....

I'm happy with this respin assuming Peters dtc-is-compulsory series
goes through before. Otherwise people with dtc 1.3.0 installed will
get cop a silent failure when qemu borks on their previously-working
system 1.3.0 and falls backs to just building with no dtc at all.

I'll remake in the meantime.

Regards,
Peter
