I have been debugging this issue and could use some advice.

The basic issue I see is that do_make_scripts executes and fails. I have seen 
different fails but in the end it all comes back to something being required in 
recipe-sysroot or recipe-sysroot-native and it's not there. For instance 
gcc-cross-aarch64 is missing from recipe-sysroot-native.

Yocto build dependencies is a rather advanced topic and I certainly don't feel 
I understand exactly what the issue is... but here is my guess.

1. I changed my linux kernel recipe.
2. Because of #1, the cross compiler decided to rebuild. Generally, this isn't 
an issue. In fact the old cross compiler should *still* be in 
3. Once the kernel build artifacts is done... my module recipes fire. The first 
thing they want to do is run do_cve_check.
4. This is the part that causes the problem... do_cve_check DELETES 
gcc-cross-aarch64 from the sysroot! This is because it cannot find 
gcc-cross-aarch64.complete... which points to a manifest file. I think this 
manifest file is created by the gcc-cross-aarch64.do_populate_sysroot. Problem 
is, cve_check does not depend on that?

This race condition does not always present itself so I am running tests... my 

do_cve_check[depends] += "${PN}:do_prepare_recipe_sysroot"

I do that because I believe do_prepare_recipe_sysroot already depends on 
whatever is required in the recipe-sysroot dirs so it's a more general fix.

Does this make sense to anyone?
