kbuild: hardcode genksyms path and remove GENKSYMS variable
The genksyms source was integrated into the kernel tree in 2003. I do not expect anybody still using the external /sbin/genksyms. Kbuild does not need to provide the ability to override GENKSYMS. Let's remove the GENKSYMS variable, and use the hardcoded path. Since it occurred in the pre-git era, I attached the commit message in case somebody is interested in the historical background. | Author: Kai Germaschewski <kai@tp1.ruhr-uni-bochum.de> | Date: Wed Feb 19 04:17:28 2003 -0600 | | kbuild: [PATCH] put genksyms in scripts dir | | This puts genksyms into scripts/genksyms/. | | genksyms used to be maintained externally, though the only possible user | was the kernel build. Moving it into the kernel sources makes it easier to | keep it uptodate, like for example updating it to generate linker scripts | directly instead of postprocessing the generated header file fragments | with sed, as we do currently. | | Also, genksyms does not handle __typeof__, which needs to be fixed since | some of the exported symbol in the kernel are defined using __typeof__. | | (Rusty Russell/me) Signed-off-by: Masahiro Yamada <yamada.masahiro@socionext.com>
