qt: add patch to fix build on non-x86 platforms
This commit adds a patch to Qt that adjusts its build system to properly support building on non-x86 platforms. The problem was due to the PLATFORM and XPLATFORM variables having the same value when building on a ppc64le system targetting an uncommon architecture (Xtensa or ARC for example). We fix this problem by making sure PLATFORM and XPLATFORM will always be different. Fixes the following build failures occuring on gcc112 (a ppc64le autobuilder machine): http://autobuild.buildroot.net/results/527747a2fbb31195bb6fdb37cfdaa624e69b7d68/ (qt on xtensa) http://autobuild.buildroot.net/results/7db1265f6f34be3a498881564292517a8fc0e44e/ (qt on ARC) Signed-off-by: Thomas Petazzoni <thomas.petazzoni@free-electrons.com> Signed-off-by: Peter Korsgaard <peter@korsgaard.com> (cherry picked from commit e86b74333e740516b6472dab5fa8f7822ae82840) Signed-off-by: Peter Korsgaard <peter@korsgaard.com>

+Subject: [PATCH] configure: fix build on non-x86 platforms
+When building for an uncommon platform on a ppc64le machine, Qt build
+fails because it builds qmake with the target compiler instead of
+using the host compiler. This is due to the fact that Qt configure
+script believes that both the host and target platforms are "powerpc",
+even though the target really is Xtensa or ARC for example.
+Qt's configure script defines a variable called PLATFORM that points to
+the mkspecs describing the host machine. For x86, its value is
+qws/linux-x86-g++ and for x86-64, its value is
+qws/linux-x86_64-g++. For any other host architecture, its value is
+In parallel to this, Qt's configure script defines a variable called
+XPLATFORM that points to the mkspecs describing the target machine. It
+points to qws/linux-${CFG_EMBEDDED}-g++, where CFG_EMBEDDED is
+simply "generic" for most uncommon architectures.
+Therefore, when we're building for an uncommon architecture, on a
+ppc64le machine, we have:
+ PLATFORM = qws/linux-generic-g++
+ XPLATFORM = qws/linux-generic-g++
+i.e, both values are equal. Due to this, the following condition is
+if [ "$PLATFORM" != "$XPLATFORM" -a "$CFG_EMBEDDED" != "no" ]; then
+which causes Qt's configure script to fallback to:
+elif [ "$PLATFORM_MAC" = "yes" ] || [ -z "$CFG_ARCH" ]; then
+because CFG_ARCH is not defined, and therefore gets defined to
+CFG_HOST_ARCH. So we have CFG_ARCH == CFG_HOST_ARCH, and Qt believes
+we're doing a native build.
+Therefore, we need to ensure that PLATFORM and XPLATFORM always have a
+different value. To achieve this, we create a
+qws/linux-host-generic-g++ mkspecs, which is always used as
+PLATFORM. It is identical to qws/linux-x86-g++. Compared to
+qws/linux-x86_64-g++, the only difference is that we're not passing
+the -m64 flag, but that isn't needed when building host tools.
