SubjectRe: [U-Boot] [patch 1/2] Enable the use of an uncompressed kernel image for U-boot uImage
Date
Dear Remy,

In message <48b309fe.0a04d00a.527b.ffffa801@mx.google.com> you wrote:
> Normally the 'zImage' is used as base for uImage.

This is an interesting feature, but...

> +config UNCOMPRESSED_UIMAGE
> + bool "Use uncompressed kernel image for uImage"

.. I think it is wrong to make this a configuration option. Instead, a
separate make target should be used so you can actually chose which
image you wantr (or even both versions) without having to reconfigure
/ rebuild the kernel.


Best regards,

Wolfgang Denk

GUIs are virtually useless. Learn tools. They're configurable,
scriptable, automatable, cron-able, interoperable, etc. We don't need
no brain-dead winslurping monolithic claptrap.
