4.3.6. Kernel Makefiles

When building the kernel, the Makefiles scan the configuration and decide what subdirectories to descend into and what source files to compile for a given configuration. To complete the example of adding support for two custom hardware platforms, Vega and Constellation, let's look at the makefile that would read this configuration and take some action based on customizations.

Because you're dealing with hardware specific options in this example, assume that the customizations are represented by two hardware-setup modules called vega_setup.c and constellation_setup.c. We've placed these C source files in the .../arch/arm/mach-ixp4xx subdirectory of the kernel source tree. Listing 4-12 contains the complete makefile for this directory from a recent Linux release.

Listing 4-12. Makefile from …/arch/arm/mach-ixp4xx Kernel Subdirectory

#
# Makefile for the linux kernel.
#
obj-y += common.o common-pci.o
obj-$(CONFIG_ARCH_IXDP4XX) += ixdp425-pci.o ixdp425-setup.o
obj-$(CONFIG_MACH_IXDPG425) += ixdpg425-pci.o coyote-setup.o
obj-$(CONFIG_ARCH_ADI_COYOTE) += coyote-pci.o coyote-setup.o
obj-$(CONFIG_MACH_GTWX5715) += gtwx5715-pci.o gtwx5715-setup.o

You might be surprised by the simplicity of this makefile. Much work has gone into the development of the kernel build system for just this reason. For the average developer who simply needs to add support for his custom hardware, the design of the kernel build system makes these kinds of customizations very straightforward.[34]

Looking at this makefile, it might be obvious what must be done to introduce new hardware setup routines conditionally based on your configuration options. Simply add the following two lines at the bottom of the makefile, and you're done:

obj-$(CONFIG_ARCH_VEGA) += vega_setup.o
obj-$(CONFIG_ARCH_CONSTELLATION) += costellation_setup.o

These steps complete the simple addition of setup modules specific to the hypothetical example custom hardware. Using similar logic, you should now be able to make your own modifications to the kernel configuration/build system.
