SubjectRe: [EVIL-PATCH] getting rid of lib/lib.a and breaking many archs in the processes (was Re: [PATCH] fixed: CRC32=y && 8193TOO=m unresolved symbols)

New variable introduced: lib-y
The lib-y syntax allows you to do the usual tricks such as:
lib-$(CONFIG_SMP) += percpu_counter.o

A built-in.o is always present in a directory that list .o files in
either obj-* or lib-*.
lib.a is made only when lib-y is defined.
In the top-level Makefile I now always have a lib.a and built-in.o for
directories listed in libs-y (libs-y is only used in architecture
specific makefiles).

I am considering removing the requirement to list directories
that uses lib-y in libs-y. Kbuild has the information, so no need
to do it. It just looks a bit too ugly at first glance.

I updated lib/makefile [crc32.o is now always build-in if selected].
And i386/lib as well.

Does this meet what you had in mind?

Sam
