PetaLinux 2014.4 - U-Boot Compilation Fails When Using The Latest Mainline U-Boot Source


When fetching the latest mainline U-Boot source code, compilation fails when building the system with the petalinux-build tool.


The latest mainline U-Boot uses the Makefile option rsync --cvs-exclude.  

This option causes the PetaLinux build infrastructure to fail.  

This issue does not affect the U-Boot source that ships with PetaLinux 2014.4.  

A patch is provided below for the master PetaLinux U-Boot Makefile to work around this issue.
