Your commit 6bbb24cf8d0b0a060c57d9c07610210cdf2dcc96 ('ARM: Turn most
board directories into regular build directories') apparently breaks
the build of kwbimage for Marvell EBU platforms.
The kwbimage is built as follows:
KWBIMAGE_OPTS = \
-c -i $(srctree)/$(BOARD)/kwbimage.cfg -d $(TEXT_BASE) -e $(TEXT_BASE)
quiet_cmd_kwbimage = KWB $@
cmd_kwbimage = scripts/kwbimage -p $< $(KWBIMAGE_OPTS) -o $@ || \
echo "WARNING: Couldn't create KWB image due to previous errors."
quiet_cmd_kwbimage_uart = KWBUART $@
cmd_kwbimage_uart = scripts/kwbimage -m uart -p $< $(KWBIMAGE_OPTS) -o $@ || \
echo "WARNING Couldn't create KWB image due to previous errors."
so we rely on the $(BOARD) variable to contain
arch/arm/boards/<theboard>/. Unfortunately, with your commit, this is
no longer the case.
Your commit made the assumption that only those boards that have a
config.h should stay in board-y, but the Marvell EBU boards should also
stay in board-y, or another solution needs to be found.
I've temporarily worked around the problem by re-adding:
+board-$(CONFIG_MACH_GLOBALSCALE_GURUPLUG) += globalscale-guruplug
Since I haven't yet grasped the entire philosophy of the Barebox build
system, I'm not sure what the correct fix is.
