Hello community,

I have noticed that do_kernel_metadata is always executed before do_patch. What is the reason for this ordering?

In my setup, I have a patch that changes some options in the in-tree defconfig that I want to use (set using KBUILD_DEFCONFIG) and, due to the ordering mentioned above, the changes are not taken into account. Is there another way to apply changes to an in-tree defconfig before the effect of do_kernel_metadata takes place?
For places I need to dump in a whole defconfig, I just copy it in as
part of SRC_URI:

SRC_URI = "git://;branch=${KBRANCH}
file://ti_sdk_am3x_release_defconfig;subdir=git/arch/arm/configs \
