Description Thomas Steudten 2006-04-13 04:49:21 EDT
Description of problem:

In the header section of the kernel spec file, there're some values to enable or
disable settings, like %define buildpae 0.
But this are not override settings, but predefined values. Later this value will
be override by %ifarch i686
%define buildpae 1

But if someone won't build the PAE kernel, there's no global setting to do this
simply in the header section. The first look to this section shows ok, it is
disabled, but then it is enabled again. Please find a better way for this.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel spec file 2.6.16 -1.2128

they were never intended as override settings.

I know, but the enable xenbuild is used like this, why not this setting? Setting
a flag deep in the code is not the best way.
