Vivado - link_design fails in a non-project flow when the EDIF file name does not match module/entity name


I am using a non-project flow and using edif as a submodule.
When the edif file name does not match the module/entity name, "link_design" fails to recognize the module.
As a result, the module is not resolved and remains as black box.


In a non-project mode, the tools look for a netlist file with the module name.

To work around this, change the file name to use the same name as the module/entity name or vise versa.
