[Hikey960] build break on android-hikey-linaro-4.19

I cloned the 960 kernel from “https://android.googlesource.com/kernel/hikey-linaro” but encounter the build break on branch “android-hikey-linaro-4.19” by following the steps from the website.

Steps:
git clone https://android.googlesource.com/kernel/hikey-linaro
cd hikey-linaro
git checkout -b android-hikey-linaro-4.19 origin/android-hikey-linaro-4.19
make ARCH=arm64 hikey960_defconfig
make ARCH=arm64 CROSS_COMPILE=aarch64-linux-android- -j24

The error log is showing as below and does anyone have an idea for how to fix it? Thanks.

It will work if you use the branch “android-hikey-linaro-4.14”. For now, it seems no one knows how to solve the problem in branch 4.19 here.

Hi,

I think the building error is related with compiler. I use the toolchain is:

$ aarch64-linux-gnu-gcc --version
aarch64-linux-gnu-gcc (Ubuntu/Linaro 7.4.0-1ubuntu1~18.04.1) 7.4.0

hi aachen,
i am getting same issue with 4.19 kernel.
please let me know, have u solved thr compailer issue.

regards
sukesh

do you mean that CROSS_COMPILE=aarch64-linux-android- is same as aarch64-linux-gnu-gcc ? i found that , after source ./build/envsetup.sh and lunch hikey960-userdebug in aosp dir, i found the error aarch64-linux-android-gcc not found, while build hikey-linaro kernel.
wait for your response.Thanks.

Thanks for reporting this. It’s true that I cannot find aarch64-linux-android-gcc from AOSP’s aarch64 toolchain; I am not sure if this is because now Android is mainly using LLVM/Clang for the building so GCC toolchain is not updated anymore. I need to check internally for this.

At the mean time, you could try the toolchain [1] or [2] for Linux kernel building; usually you need to select the toolchian for AArch64 GNU/Linux target (aarch64-none-linux-gnu).

Updated: GCC is deprecated in AOSP; either download GCC toolchain from Arm or Linaro website, or refer the thread [3] to use Clang for building kernel.

[3] Is it able to use clang to build hikey-linaro?
