RTEMS BSP Builder for developers

I have added a new tool to the RTEMS Tools Project to build BSPs in
various command line combinations to help check if a patch is ok for
submission. Using the tool is not mandatory but it does help if you have
a patch that effects a number of configure options. The motivation
behind this tool is to make a standard and supported tool to replace
scripts various developers have and used for many years.
The tool is not for users to build a BSP. It is a testing tool.
The tool is configured by a file
what I have provided is to seed the tool and to get things up and
running. Suggestions and additions are most welcome. Please send patches
to this list or open a ticket.
In time we will need to ensure the tier-1 profile builds and I would
like to get a way for warning levels to be checks against online levels
so the tool can highlight warning regressions.
I am using the tools with the following command line:
$ /opt/work/rtems/4.12/bin/rtems-bsp-builder \
--rtems-tools /opt/work/rtems/4.12 \
--rtems /opt/work/chris/rtems/kernel/rtems.git \
--build-path /builds/rtems \
You can specify a build directory where the build output is placed. In
my case I have a ZFS formatted spinning disk mounted for this purpose
under /build. The tools and source are on SSD disks.
Currently there are 13 variations built per BSP, the configuration file
has the details.
The log contains a list of warnings sorted by frequency.
I am seeing around 3m30s per BSP being built.
