Subject[PATCH 5.7 176/265] selftests/powerpc: Fix build failure in ebb tests
From: Harish <>

[ Upstream commit 896066aa0685af3434637998b76218c2045142a8 ]

We use OUTPUT directory as TMPOUT for checking no-pie option.

Since commit f2f02ebd8f38 ("kbuild: improve cc-option to clean up all
temporary files") when building powerpc/ from selftests directory, the
OUTPUT directory points to powerpc/pmu/ebb/ and gets removed when
checking for -no-pie option in try-run routine, subsequently build
fails with the following:

$ make -C powerpc
make[2]: Entering directory '/home/linux-master/tools/testing/selftests/powerpc/pmu/ebb'
make[2]: *** No rule to make target 'Makefile'.
make[2]: Failed to remake makefile 'Makefile'.
make[2]: *** No rule to make target 'ebb.c', needed by '/home/linux-master/tools/testing/selftests/powerpc/pmu/ebb/reg_access_test'.
make[2]: *** No rule to make target 'ebb_handler.S', needed by '/home/linux-master/tools/testing/selftests/powerpc/pmu/ebb/reg_access_test'.
make[2]: *** No rule to make target 'trace.c', needed by '/home/linux-master/tools/testing/selftests/powerpc/pmu/ebb/reg_access_test'.
make[2]: *** No rule to make target 'busy_loop.S', needed by '/home/linux-master/tools/testing/selftests/powerpc/pmu/ebb/reg_access_test'.
make[2]: Target 'all' not remade because of errors.

Fix this by adding a suffix to the OUTPUT directory so that the
failure is avoided.
