2008-08-02firmware: silence __fw_modbuild and __fw_modinst 'Nothing to be done' messagesDavid Woodhouse1-0/+4
People don't like them and think they're errors. Leave the __fw_install one though; when 'make firmware_install' does nothing, it's best to have a 'Nothing to be done for...' message rather than just doing nothing. Signed-off-by: David Woodhouse <David.Woodhouse@intel.com>
2008-07-25firmware: create firmware binaries during 'make modules'.David Woodhouse1-4/+6
This means that we no longer need write access to the source tree while doing 'make modules_install'. Signed-off-by: David Woodhouse <David.Woodhouse@intel.com>
2008-07-17Update scripts/Makefile.fwinst to cope with older makeDavid Woodhouse1-2/+23
Also fix unwanted rebuilds of the firmware/ihex2fw tool by including the .ihex2fw.cmd file when present. Signed-off-by: David Woodhouse <David.Woodhouse@intel.com> Reported-and-tested-by: Wang Chen <wangchen@cn.fujitsu.com> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
2008-07-10ihex: add ihex2fw tool for converting HEX files into firmware imagesDavid Woodhouse1-1/+1
Not the straight conversion to binary which objcopy can do for us, but actually representing each record with its original {addr, length}, because some drivers need that information preserved. Fix up 'firmware_install' to be able to build $(hostprogs-y) too. Signed-off-by: David Woodhouse <dwmw2@infradead.org>
2008-07-10firmware: Add firmware installation to modules_install, add firmware_installDavid Woodhouse1-0/+45
For 'make modules_install', install any firmware required by the modules which are being installed. Also add a 'make firmware_install' target which doesn't depend on the configuration, but installs _all_ available in-kernel-tree firmware into $(INSTALL_FW_PATH), which defaults to /lib/firmware. This is intended for distributors to make arch-independent (and config-independent) packages containing firmware. Signed-off-by: David Woodhouse <David.Woodhouse@intel.com>
