Long overdue review from my side...

Hmmm, we have two architectures that uses scripts/ and three that
uses tools/.
I prefer the latter name as what we have ere is beyound what
I generally recognize as a script.

we have scripts/ in top-level and we do not rename this
as we have this hardcoded too many places - but no reason to
use the wrong name here.

Why this?
If you need this to use this file from userspace then could we do some
other trick to make this OK?

I see it repeated several times below.
[If this has already been discussed I have missed it - sorry].

You are using the native objdump here.
But I assume this fails miserably when you build x86 on a powerpc host.
In other words - you broke an allyesconfig build for -next...
We have $(OBJDUMP) for this.

Is there a specific reason why you cannot use the standard hostprogs-y for this?
It will take care of dependency tracking etc.
What you have above is a hopeless incomplete list of dependencies.

You need to use HOST_EXTRACFLAGS to set additional -I options and the -include.

It would be nice to tell the user what the program is supposed to do.
I know this is a bit unusual but no reason to copy bad practice.

So this is a file that alows you to include the other files without dragging in
a massive amount a stuff.
Would be nice if you wrote so in the file so it is explicit.


I tried to look at inat.h to see why all this was needed but tht
file is not present in my tree - neither in -tip?
