I wish to make all contributions upstream. What would really help at
first would be to have all targets built regularly to see where work is
needed. This is where I think the Debian infrastructure could help, in a
similar way as what was started for Coreboot.

FWIW, I was planning on including this patch to u-boot in the next
upload to Debian:

   
https://anonscm.debian.org/cgit/collab-maint/u-boot.git/tree/debian/patches/use-date-from-debian-changelog.patch?h=experimental-2015.07

I *think* that actually makes u-boot build reproducibly with Debian's
reproducible builds toolchain when SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH is set, but I
haven't tested it fully. I might have missed some other sources of
non-determinism...


Hoping to get some armhf buildd nodes up an running soonish... although
it should also be buildable with the cross-toolchains, if the
reproducible buildds coulld be made to support that.

Did you see my v2 patch [1] for u-boot?

It also builds now u-boot images created with mkimage reproducible ...

If I interpret your patch from above correct, you add with
SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH a specific fix timestamp?

I think, this could be included to my approach too ...

If SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH is defined, use it, fi not defined
define U_BOOT_DATE, U_BOOT_TIME and U_BOOT_TZ
with my default settings from [1] ...

All only if CONFIG_SYS_EXACT_BINARY is set in the u-boot
config of course ...

What do you think?

bye,
Heiko
