do_kernel_configme - Could not generate configuration queue

Rudolf J Streif

I am running into a bizarre problem with kernel configuration.

I have an existing build environment that builds for an i.MX6ul machine. That works fine and the linux-fslc kernel 5.18 builds without any problems. Now within the that build environment I changed the machine to imx6ullevk and then the kernel configuration fails with this error message:

I tried to debug do_kernel_configme. The issue seems in the scc script more specifically, I think, in the kconf command that is called by scc when parsing the temporary configuration queue file in /tmp: tmp.owmBptYrba

Apparently a call to dirname is missing the argument. However, I do not understand why.

I wiped out build/tmp directory entirely, ran a cleanall on virtual/kernel but to no avail. The problem remains the same.

Has anybody seen this issue before?
