Subject: Re: [PATCH] samples: build fix

Message-ID: <20080214200257.42815270195@magilla.localdomain> (raw)
In-Reply-To: Sam Ravnborg's message of  Thursday, 14 February 2008 20:46:33 +0100 <20080214194633.GA21894@uranus.ravnborg.org>

I don't have any axe to grind here, I just could not figure out how to get
the samples/ modules built (without resorting to make M=.../samples/foo and
clobbering my source directory).  If there is another plan, point me to its
documentation.  I can't see the point of the Kconfig option for samples at all.
What does it do?

Because they are only ever modules, the samples are never built in.  I
honestly don't see why the modules shouldn't be installed like any others.
People who are really going to install the kernel for production are not
going to set this Kconfig option.


Thanks,
Roland
