Subject[PATCH 12/28] kbuild: make V=2 tell why a target is rebuild
Date
From: Sam Ravnborg <sam@mars.ravnborg.org>

tell why a a target got build
enabled by make V=2
Output (listed in the order they are checked):
(1) - due to target is PHONY
(2) - due to target missing
(3) - due to: file1.h file2.h
(4) - due to command line change
(5) - due to missing .cmd file
(6) - due to target not in $(targets)
(1) We always build PHONY targets
(2) No target, so we better build it
(3) Prerequisite is newer than target
(4) The command line stored in the file named dir/.target.cmd
differed from actual command line. This happens when compiler
options changes
(5) No dir/.target.cmd file (used to store command line)
(6) No dir/.target.cmd file and target not listed in $(targets)
This is a good hint that there is a bug in the kbuild file

This patch is inspired by a patch from: Milton Miller <miltonm@bga.com>
