archiver: create dir 'B' explicitly while WORKDIR changed
In the do_unpack_and_patch task of archiver, the changed 'WORKDIR' also casued 'B' changed, create dir 'B' for the possibly requiring of the tasks which executed in do_unpack_and_patch task. Such as cut-ecgl's do_patch required 'B' existed: ... | cp: target 'tmp/work/x86_64-wrs-linux/cut-ecgl/1.0-r0/archiver-work /cut-ecgl-1.0' is not a directory ... | ERROR: Function failed: do_patch (log file is located at tmp/work/ x86_64-wrs-linux/cut-ecgl/1.0-r0/temp/do_unpack_and_patch/ log.do_unpack_and_patch.11886) ... The 'B' dir is implicitly created at the task executing time while the task tag 'dirs' is not assigned. In the above cut-ecgl example, the 'B' was created at the wrl_buildlink executing time which is the prefuncs of task do_unpack. So the following do_patch could use 'B' correctly. But wrl_buildlink is unnecessary and not invoked in the do_unpack_and_patch task. Signed-off-by: Hongxu Jia <> Signed-off-by: Richard Purdie <>
