u-boot FTBFS on ia64; weird make behavior -- timestamp skew?
u-boot has been failing to build on ia64 for some uploads now, but I
can't reproduce on the porterbox (merulo) where it builds fine. The
build failure seems to be some kind of race condition in the upstream
makefiles, but it doesn't happen on other architectures nor on the
porter box, so I suspect it could be due to the buildd setup (nfs,
uncommon filesystem, older kernel or such?). NB: builds of older
u-boots were successful on ia64 until the point where "make tools" was
run as part of the build.
Any help in reproducing this issue would be welcome!
