samples/seccomp/Makefile: do not build tests if cross-compiling for MIPS
The Makefile is designed to use the host toolchain so it may be unsafe to build the tests if the kernel has been configured and built for another architecture. This fixes a build problem when the kernel has been configured and built for the MIPS architecture but the host is not MIPS (cross-compiled). The MIPS syscalls are only defined if one of the following is true: 1) _MIPS_SIM == _MIPS_SIM_ABI64 2) _MIPS_SIM == _MIPS_SIM_ABI32 3) _MIPS_SIM == _MIPS_SIM_NABI32 Of course, none of these make sense on a non-MIPS toolchain and the following build problem occurs when building on a non-MIPS host. linux/usr/include/linux/kexec.h:50: userspace cannot reference function or variable defined in the kernel samples/seccomp/bpf-direct.c: In function `emulator': samples/seccomp/bpf-direct.c:76:17: error: `__NR_write' undeclared (first use in this function) Signed-off-by: Markos Chandras <markos.chandras@imgtec.com> Reported-by: Paul Gortmaker <paul.gortmaker@windriver.com> Cc: Ralf Baechle <ralf@linux-mips.org> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
