to ASSUME_PROVIDED that we would have otherwise built so that the host tools
are used, we haven't tested the build with those host tools. Equally if you
remove items from the default value of ASSUME_PROVIDED, we don't necessarily
fully test the system with native tools that we don't normally build (although
that's less likely to be an issue than the other case).
I'm not saying you can't change the value of ASSUME_PROVIDED - just that if
you do and the build breaks, you get to keep both pieces :)
if you're on an allegedly supported distro, and you do an upgrade,That's why we test specific versions of distributions, and with the Poky distro
config we warn the user if the distro/distro version is untested. It's rare
that you get that kind of breakage between major versions; if there were then
other applications are likely to be affected so it would be considered a
regression in that distro.
