12.2 EDK - SDK Tactical Patch

Description


There are three SDK issues that were discovered after the 12.2 build was finalized:

- Only one Include Path is used

-- Symptom: When a project has multiple include paths, only the first one is present in the gcc command line and the rest are ignored.

- Projects are recompiled every time SDK is closed/re-opened

-- Issue: When SDK is closed and re-opened, it compiles all the files even if their corresponding object files are already present. This is a serious issue for big projects with long build times.

- SDK's UART implementation does not work

-- Issue: In the debug configuration, the STDIO port tab only lists a single item "Detecting COM Ports", and it never updates to actually list the COM ports available.

Solution


A tactical patch has been created to fix these three issues.
