LIN6-14011 : glibc build failures

Severity: Standard
Applicable for: Wind River Linux 6
Component/s: Build & Config


During glibc rebuild, cpio is truncating inode number of the files. (altering inode number). This will randomly create files with the same inode number. Files with the same inode number will be hard linked by cpio when unpacked.
When different h-filles are linked together, the do_compile step will not work as expected.

Steps to Reproduce

1. configure --enable-rootfs=glibc-small --enable-board=qemux86-64
2. echo 'WRL_GLIBC_MODE = "wrl-glibc-rebuild"' >> bitbake_build/conf/auto.conf
3. cd layers/wr-toolchain
4. git apply add-arguments-to-cpio.patch
5. make bbs
6. bitbake wrl-glibc-rebuild -c configure
