support/download: fix tarball generation with symlinks pointing to ./something
When a --transform expression is provided, it is by default also applied to the target of a symlink. When we create tarballs (from git or svn checkouts), we use a --transform expression to replace the leading ./ with the package name and version. This causes issues when a package contains symlinks that points to ./something, as the leading './' is also replaced. Fix that by using the 'S' transformation scope flag, as described in the tar manual: https://www.gnu.org/software/tar/manual/html_node/transform.html#transform In addition, several transformation scope flags are supported, that control to what files transformations apply. These are: ‘r’ Apply transformation to regular archive members. ‘R’ Do not apply transformation to regular archive members. ‘s’ Apply transformation to symbolic link targets. ‘S’ Do not apply transformation to symbolic link targets. ‘h’ Apply transformation to hard link targets. ‘H’ Do not apply transformation to hard link targets. Default is ‘rsh’ [...]. Fixes: #13616 This has been checked to not change any of the existing hash for any of our git-downloaded package (some are host-only, hence the few fixups): ---8<--- $ m="$( git grep -l -E -- -br[[:digit:]]+.tar.gz boot package/ \ |awk -F/ '{print $(NF-1)}' \ |sed -r -e 's/(imx-mkimage|netsurf-buildsystem|prelink-cross|qoriq-rcw|vboot-utils)/host-\1/g' \ -e 's/$/-source/' )" $ make defconfig; make clean; BR2_DL_DIR=$(pwd)/trash-me make ${m} ---8<--- Note: it is unclear what the 'H' flag does nor how it works, because the concept of "target of a hardlink" is not obvious; probably it has to do with how tar internally detects and stores hardlinks. Since we do not yet have any issue with hardlinks, just ignore the problem for now, and postpone until we have an actual issue with a real test-case.
