Before this patch, the management of dependencies between directories
had several issues:
- the generation of .depdirs, done at configuration is slow: it can take
more than one minute on some slow targets (usually ~10s on a standard
PC without -j).
- for instance, it is possible to express a dependency like:
- app/foo depends on lib/librte_foo
- and lib/librte_foo depends on app/bar
But this won't work because the directories are traversed with a
depth-first algorithm, so we have to choose between doing 'app' before
or after 'lib'.
- the script depdirs-rule.sh is too complex.
- we cannot use "make -d" for debug, because the output of make is used for
the generation of .depdirs.
This patch moves the DEPDIRS-* variables in the upper Makefile, making
the dependencies much easier to calculate. A DEPDIRS variable is still
used to process library dependencies in LDLIBS.
After this commit, "make config" is almost immediate.
