Subject[PATCH 1/3] time: move timeconst.h into include/generated
Date
kernel/time/timeconst.h is moved to include/generated/ and generated in
an early build stage by top level Kbuild. This allows using timeconst.h
in an earlier stage of the build.

Signed-off-by: Nicholas Mc Guire <hofrat@osadl.org>

Thanks to Joe Perches <joe@perches.com> for suggesting this approach and
catching the unconditional rebuild (should be fixed here now properly) as well
as for his review comments on the first attempts.

Some questions:
* Kbuild - is passing in arguments to .bc files via pipe and read();
rather than using multiple files acceptable or is there some reason
for the original multifile solution that Im overlooking ?
* conditional rebuild of timeconst.h with $(call filechk,gentimeconst)
not really clear if this is going to do all rebuilds that could be
necessary and not clear how to verify this. currently only checked by
1) defconfig -> build -> rebuild -> CHK is executed timeconst.h unmodified
2) defconfig -> build -> change HZ -> rebuild -> UPD timeconst.h resulting
in a rebuild of most files.

Patch was compile tested for x86_64_defconfig,multi_v7_defconfig,
ppc64_defconfig, and boot/run
tested on x86_64. Further a test-case with an invalid HZ value to trigger the
error output in kernel/time/timeconst.bc was run.

Patch is against 4.0-rc6 (localversion-next is -next-20150402)
