core: fix setting of HOSTARCH
Currently, we set HOSTARCH to the output of `uname -m`. This gives us the architecture as seen by the running kernel. For example, we would end up with 'x86_64' for a 64-bit kernel running on an x86_64 processor. We use that value to determine whether we can run some binary tools, like our pre-configured external toolchains. However, one may be running a userland in a different bitness than that of the running kernel. For example, one may run in a 32-bit chroot, even though the kernel is running in 64-bit. Up until recently, this was not an issue because the pre-configured external toolchains were all requiring an i386 (x86 in Buildroot parlance). But since we introduced the latest Linaro toolchains, we now have toolchains that require a 64-bit userland. So, when running on a 64-bit kernel, we believe those toolchains are available, even when the user is running a 32-bit userland. This causes build failures for our autobuilders, like so: http://autobuild.buildroot.org/results/9cd/9cdf10ec5b31144b2e03ea09cf128702339895b3/ with the following symptoms: >>> toolchain-external undefined Configuring Cannot execute cross-compiler '/home/test/autobuild/instance-3/output/host/opt/ext-toolchain/bin/aarch64-linux-gnu-gcc' So, instead of relying on the output of `uname -r`, look for the host gcc and extract the target it was configured to generate code for. Fixes: http://autobuild.buildroot.org/results/9cd/9cdf10ec5b31144b2e03ea09cf128702339895b3/ (aarch64) http://autobuild.buildroot.org/results/888/8889aa7d9fb48370e4760a6edbc6d3ae945f02f2/ (arm) and many more... Besides fixing those issues, it will also allow us to add the 64-bit variants of toolchains when they exist, like the upcoming Codescape MTI and IMG toolchains for MIPS from Imagination Technologies.
