2018-01-30drivers: improve pmdinfo generation with mesonBruce Richardson
Since meson 0.44, changing any file inside a PMD directory (quite correctly) triggers a full re-run of meson on build, rather than an incremental build as with earlier versions. This rerun is needed because we use "grep" in meson to search for files on which to run pmdinfogen, and changing any of those files means that grep and, therefore meson, needs to be rerun. [Previous versions of meson did not track this dependency on the grep command, and so did incremental builds only.] If, however, we take advantage of pmdinfogen's ability to use stdin and stdout instead of files, we can instead use a shell script to process an entire static archive and generate a single .c file from it. This eliminates the need for grep, and means that changes to a PMD file only need an incremental build - a significant time saving. Signed-off-by: Bruce Richardson <>

2018-01-30buildtools: build with mesonBruce Richardson
Add the buildtools folder, and more specifically the pmdinfogen binary to the meson and ninja build. This will be needed for building the PMDs in the driver folder later, as the pmd info output from the tool needs to be included in those libs.
