coreutils: don't split stdbuf to own package with single-binary
Commit 992cec44 (coreutils: Move stdbuf into an own package coreutils-stdbuf) breaks package-qa when the single-binary PACKAGECONFIG is used: ERROR: coreutils-8.32-r0 do_package_qa: QA Issue: /usr/bin/stdbuf contained in package coreutils-stdbuf requires /usr/bin/coreutils, but no providers found in RDEPENDS_coreutils-stdbuf? [file-rdeps] ERROR: coreutils-8.32-r0 do_package_qa: QA run found fatal errors. Please consider fixing them. With that PACKAGECONFIG, /usr/bin/stdbuf is just a simple "script" containing the single line #!/usr/bin/coreutils --coreutils-prog-shebang=stdbuf Since there's no point splitting stdbuf to its own package when all the functionality is in the single big coreutils binary anyway, fix this by not creating the separate stdbuf package for the single-binary case. But also make sure that the coreutils-stdbuf item always exists so recipes can always RDEPEND on coreutils-stdbuf. Signed-off-by: Rasmus Villemoes <> Signed-off-by: Richard Purdie <>
