Hi Guenter,

Sorry, I am way behind on this...

m68k:defconfig is an alias for m68k:multi_defconfig, so you can drop
one of them.

Furthermore, m68k:multi_defconfig is the union of all m68k "classic MMU"
defconfigs, except for sun3_defconfig (due to the incompatible MMU type).
Hence dropping apollo_defconfig, mac_defconfig, sun3x_defconfig,
mvme16x_defconfig, and hp300_defconfig would reduce your build coverage
only marginally. Of course, if you have too many spare cycles ;-)

Thanks, I'll do that. The complete build for three releases takes 15+ hours
with i7-3700k, so reducing that a bit doesn't hurt.

FYI, you still built m68k:mvme16x_defconfig for v3.9.7-95-g6a2f14b.

Would there be any useful builds to add ?

You could add m68k:m5475evb_defconfig, which is the only Coldfire
defconfig with MMU=y.

Greg: Any other advice for Coldfire?

I might have some, except I am not sure what we are talking about.
I don't have enough context from the above alone :-)

Just trying to figure out an optimal set of targets for test builds.

I take it this is test building 3.0.84?


I haven't built a 3.0.x for a while, so not sure why the above
ColdFire targets are failing without going and trying it out.

Lots of assembler error messages, plus complaints about redefinitions and
implicit declarations.

and so on. Not that it tells me anything. I'd guess I have the wrong compiler, but it does
build for 3.9, so maybe not. If you have an insight, please let me know.

Yes, this is the wrong compiler. You needed to use a m68k-uclinux
targeted toolchain for 3.0 and older kernels. There are changes to
the m68k arch Makefile and linker scripts on newer kernels that mean
you can now use an m68k-linux- toolchain (that is why 3.9 compiles

Its reasonably easy to fix this on 3.0.x kernels if you want this.
The below patch does it. I don't have any firm opinion on whether
you want to apply this to the stable 3.0.x tree. Anyone using 3.0.x
on m68knommu has always had to use a m68k-uclinux- toolchain up to


m68k: allow m68knommu targets to build with an m68k-linux toolchain

Non-mmu m68k arch targets fail to compile with a traditional m68k-linux
toolchain. Some code relies on __uClinux__ being implicitly defined.
We can just define it in our arch Makefile to satisfy this. We will
also need to add the notes section to the linker script to get a
successful build.
