Hi Bruce,

We're experiencing the following error for linux-yocto-dev.

ERROR: linux-yocto-dev-4.16-rc++gitAUTOINC+7c8016b5a8_731190752b-r0 do_populate_lic: QA Issue: linux-yocto-dev: The LIC_FILES_CHKSUM does not match for file://COPYING;md5=d7810fab7487fb0aad327b76f1be7cd7linux-yocto-dev: The new md5 checksum is bbea815ee2795b2f4230826c0c6b8814

This is because mainline COPYING has changed but LIC_FILES_CHKSUM in http://git.openembedded.org/openembedded-core/tree/meta/recipes-kernel/linux/linux-yocto.inc have not been updated. As linux-yocto.inc would impact linux-yocto, linux-yocto-dev and linux-yocto-VERSION, can we overwrite LIC_FILES_CHKSUM only in meta/recipes-kernel/linux/linux-yocto-dev.bb?
