r44113 broke kernel 3.8 based platforms in buildbot (8250.ko vs 8250_core.ko)

Reported by: hnyman Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Chaos Calmer 15.05
Component: kernel Version: Trunk
Keywords: Cc:


Looks like the simplification of kernel version checks a few days ago caused one more bug for some platforms.

r44113 simplified also package/kernel/linux/modules/ regarding serial 8250:

 -  FILES:=$(LINUX_DIR)/drivers/tty/serial/8250/8250$(if $(call kernel_patchver_ge,3.7),$(if $(call kernel_patchver_le,3.8),_core)).ko
 +  FILES:=$(LINUX_DIR)/drivers/tty/serial/8250/8250.ko

Based on the previous version of the file, it looks like platforms using old kernels 3.7 and 3.8 need 8250_core.ko instead of 8250.ko. And there are still a few 3.8 based platforms being built.

Buildbot chokes now on 3.8 based platforms. For example,

ERROR: module '/home/buildbot/slave/ep93xx/build/build_dir/target-arm_arm920t_uClibc-' is missing.
make[2]: *** [/home/buildbot/slave/ep93xx/build/bin/ep93xx/packages/base/kmod-serial-8250_3.8.13-1_ep93xx.ipk] Error 1
