2016-07-06pmdinfogen: add buildtools and pmdinfogen utilityNeil Horman
pmdinfogen is a tool used to parse object files and build json strings for use in later determining hardware support in a dso or application binary. pmdinfo looks for the non-exported symbol names this_pmd_name<n> and this_pmd_tbl<n> (where n is a integer counter). It records the name of each of these tuples, using the later to find the symbolic name of the pci_table for physical devices that the object supports. With this information, it outputs a C file with a single line of the form: static char *<pmd_name>_driver_info[] __attribute__((used)) = " \ PMD_DRIVER_INFO=<json string>"; Where <pmd_name> is the arbitrary name of the pmd, and <json_string> is the json encoded string that hold relevant pmd information, including the pmd name, type and optional array of pci device/vendor ids that the driver supports. This c file is suitable for compiling to object code, then relocatably linking into the parent file from which the C was generated. This creates an entry in the string table of the object that can inform a later tool about hardware support.

2015-05-22drivers: create new directoryBruce Richardson
Add a new top-level "drivers" directory to which all PMDs will be moved for easier maintenance of both lib folder and drivers themselves. This new directory is a dependency of all the apps in the app folder, so the makefiles for each app are updated. To the new top-level directory add a "net" subdirectory to classify more specifically our existing PMDs as ethernet drivers Signed-off-by: Bruce Richardson <bruce.richardson@intel.com> Acked-by: John McNamara <john.mcnamara@intel.com> [Thomas: fix dependencies and merge several patches] Acked-by: Thomas Monjalon <thomas.monjalon@6wind.com>
2015-03-10scripts: remove useless build toolsThomas Monjalon
test-framework.sh is an old script to check building of some dependencies. testhost is an old app used to check HOSTCC. Let's clean the scripts directory. Signed-off-by: Thomas Monjalon <thomas.monjalon@6wind.com>
2014-06-11remove trailing whitespacesBruce Richardson
This commit removes trailing whitespace from lines in files. Almost all files are affected, as the BSD license copyright header had trailing whitespace on 4 lines in it [hence the number of files reporting 8 lines changed in the diffstat].
