Description Tim Coote 2013-08-31 11:57:59 EDT
Description of problem:
As per bug, the qemu source rpm includes an old version of libfdt_env.h, which does not some fdt specific types - these definitions have made it into the /usr/include/libfdt_env.h. The source rpm will not build.

Cole Robinson fixed this for f18, but it's not been backported.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install source rpm for qemu
2. rpmbuild -ba qemu.spec
3. make fails

Actual results:
missing declaration of fdt{16,32,64}_t are not defined for some of the compiles

Expected results:
build should succeed.
