gcc: Fix mangled patch
To quote Zhuang <>: """ A few days ago, I tried to compile a gcc plugin with the toolchain from poky sdk. It failed with errors about missing header files such as backend.h etc. After investigation, I found that the problem was brought by a gcc patch: 0012-gcc-Fix-argument-list-too-long-error.patch (which is considered derived from the original patch) - headers=`echo $(PLUGIN_HEADERS) $$(cd $(srcdir); echo *.h *.def) | tr ' ' '\012' | sort -u`; \ + headers="$(sort $(PLUGIN_HEADERS) $$(cd $(srcdir); echo *.h *.def))"; \ It changes the commands of install-plugin, making the sorting taken effect before the shell globs. Thus results in the header files under gcc $(srcdir) being not installed. By checking log.do_install, we can find that the `headers=' statement to run is incorrect and will not work as expected: headers="$(cd *.def) *.h ../../../../../../../work-shared/gcc-10.1.0-r0/gcc-10.1.0/gcc/../include/ansidecl.h ... As the patch says, "The PLUGIN_HEADERS is too long before sort, so the "echo" can't handle it, ..." my suggestion is that we can simply take care of PLUGIN_HEADERS using the original proposed sort. """ This fixes the gcc patch as proposed as it does appear its been broken over time.
