This leads, indirectly, to my next question. Expanding on what we're
doing: We need to support two platforms:
* TS72xx board, already an evbarm port, uses Cirrus EP9302 processor,
which has an ARM V4T arm920t core.
* OSK5910 board, evbarm port we hope to contribute, uses TI OMAP 331
processor, which ahs an ARM V5T arm926ej-s core.
We'd like to build one V4T userland to be used by each and then build
CPU specific kernels.
We're using a mk.conf file and I had thought the solution would be to
put CPUFLAGS+=-march=armv4t and then overide it in the kernel makefile
fragment. If I'm clever and only set MAKECONF when I'm doing userland
builds, that works, but then I try to use build.sh to make release,
and that of course doesn't allow me to use that trick.
So my question is: How do I build a v4t userland and
build both v4t and v5t kernels out of the release target?
