ncurses, busybox, cml1.bbclass: Fix menuconfig display corruption
Previously there was a change to the ncurses compile to make it more like the typical way it was compiled on a host system. This fixed a whole class of host machines, but masked the real underlying problem with the display corruption issues and menuconfig. The corner case that led to the discovery that the wrong curses.h file was getting used was when there was no curses libraries at all on one of the development hosts. What had happened before was that /usr/include/curses.h on the host system had to match closely enough to the curses.h in the sysroot and then linking against the sysroot version of curses.so was ok (meaning no display corruption). But on some systems with ncurses.h vs curses.h such as SuSE hosts, there were still issues. If we fix the root of the problem and force the mconf and lxdialog to use the correct headers and libraries from the sysroot there is no further issues and the menuconfig target works properly. It also means we can back out the custom compilation flags to the ncurses recipe because they are no longer needed. For the kernel part of the menuconfig / nconfig changes it will be merged separately and this is all based on: https://lkml.org/lkml/2013/3/3/103 Signed-off-by: Jason Wessel <jason.wessel@windriver.com> Signed-off-by: Mark Hatle <mark.hatle@windriver.com> Signed-off-by: Roy Li <rongqing.li@windriver.com> Signed-off-by: Ross Burton <ross.burton@intel.com>

+Subject: [PATCH] menuconfig,check-lxdiaglog.sh: Allow specification of ncurses location
+
+Upstream-status: Submitted
+
+[ based on: https://lkml.org/lkml/2013/3/3/103 ]
+
+This patch syncs up with the way the menuconfig ncurses / curses
+is detected and the HOST_EXTRACFLAGS works in the Linux kernel
+and it allows the menuconfig to work with a sysroot version
+of the curses libraries.
+
+---
+
+In some cross build environments such as the Yocto Project build
+environment it provides an ncurses library that is compiled
+differently than the host's version. This causes display corruption
+problems when the host's curses includes are used instead of the
+includes from the provided compiler are overridden. There is a second
+case where there is no curses libraries at all on the host system and
+menuconfig will just fail entirely.
+
+The solution is simply to allow an override variable in
+check-lxdialog.sh for environments such as the Yocto Project. Adding
+a CROSS_CURSES_LIB and CROSS_CURSES_INC solves the issue and allowing
+compiling and linking against the right headers and libraries.
