default-distrovars.inc: Set BBINCLUDELOGS to empty to disable printing failed task output multiple timesjansa/gatesgarth
* the output is shown 3 times with default configuration and 5 times when --verbose is being used with knotty, there might be other use-cases where we actually need this, but until the logging is resolved better, setting this to empty looks like more reasonable option (considering that e.g. log.do_compile from chromium-x11 can be over 50MB long, generating 150MB+ cooker log) * more details in: https://bugzilla.yoctoproject.org/show_bug.cgi?id=14542 Signed-off-by: Martin Jansa <Martin.Jansa@gmail.com>
