* manual: get rid of the lists of packagesGravatar Yann E. MORIN2016-09-193-67/+0
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | We currently have four lists of packages in the manual: - the non-virtual target packages, - the virtual target packages, - the host packages, - the deprecated features. Those list take more than half of the manual. They do not serve much purpose except to show off. After the recent discussion on the list [0], remove them all. We can now get rid of our biggish and complex generating script (and its companion library kconfiglib).

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Currently, a document can not have dependencies, except for the purely internal ones (like checking asciidoc version, and presence of dblatex). For our own manual, this will come in handy when we introduce a generated kconfig snippet, so we can actually make the manual depend on that snippet being generated first. For external documents, it can be used to depend on host-packages if need be (e.g. a custom host packages that generates specific media files included in the manual). Signed-off-by: "Yann E.

* core/pkg-generic: allow packages to declare target-finalize hooksGravatar Yann E. MORIN2016-07-051-0/+7
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Currently, packages using target finalize hooks must remember that they need to register their hook in TARGET_FINALIZE_HOOKS conditionally (otherwise their hook will be triggered even if the package is disabled). In order to avoid this potential mistake, this commit introduces a per-package target-finalize hook variable, in which packages can register their target-finalize hooks, with the guarantee that they will only be triggered if the package is enabled.
