Another quick question, why is it that when I create a new
qemuarmhf.conf machine configuration, it doesn't automatically pick
up the latest recipe? Why does it attempt to use
the 3.4 recipe?
Are you working off master ?

Since you set the compatibility, it should have been picked. But something
else must be changed in your layers, since if you didn't add
3.4 compatibility via bbappends, it never would have been selected
at all.
Yes, I'm currently working off master. If I add the following
qemuarmhf.conf file, and apply the patch to, it still
tries to compile recipe. You should be able to
reproduce this fairly easily at your end, with the current poky master.
I'm not using any additional layers, just the core yocto default layers.
If you are using yocto and poky as the reference distro:

./conf/distro/poky.conf:PREFERRED_VERSION_linux-yocto ?= "3.4%"

Is where you are getting the default to 3.4.

I plan to bump that once we've shaken all the issues out of 3.10.
