Hi all,

I'm hoping this is a quick and easy issue someone already knows the answer 
to. I'm working with a ZCU102, using meta-petalinux, meta-xilinx, 
meta-xilinx-tools and bitbake/poky 1.34.0 -- both meta-xilinx and 
meta-xilinx-tools on the master branch and am having an issue with the 
meta-xilinx device-tree recipe. Just for quick and easy reference, the 
device-tree recipe is here: 

The issue that I'm running into is that when I run "bitbake device-tree" I 
get an error that there are no dts files in the device-tree/1.0-r0 
directory. Full error shown below:

ERROR: device-tree-1.0-r0 do_compile: Function failed: do_compile (log 
file is located at 
ERROR: Logfile of failure stored in: 
Log data follows:
| DEBUG: Executing shell function do_compile

ERROR: Task

rerun and 1 failed.

Summary: 1 task failed:

Summary: There was 1 ERROR message shown, returning a non-zero exit code.

After reviewing the history on this recipe, it appears the recipe was 
restructured months ago to "Improve, clean up and remove 
MACHINE_DEVICETREE". Based on this commit, it appears the intent was to 
use the dts/dtsi files within the kernel sources as a base for generating 
a device tree. There was a line added to ensure that 
"virtual/kernel:do_shared_workdir" is run prior to the device-tree recipe. 
My assumption is that the kernel recipe do_shared_workdir task is supposed 
to copy the selected machine's dts files into the shared workdir so they 
can be used by this device-tree recipe. However, this does not seem to 
happen in my case --

arch   COPYING  Documentation  fs       ipc      kernel       Makefile 
README          scripts   tools
block  CREDITS  drivers        include  Kbuild   lib          mm 
REPORTING-BUGS  security  usr
certs  crypto   firmware       init     Kconfig  MAINTAINERS  net samples  
      sound     virt

Additionally, the device-tree recipe loops over any *.dts files in the 
${S} directory, which is mapped to ${WORKDIR} in this recipe (
). This loop will effectively do an ls in the 
build/tmp/work/zcu102_zynqmp-xilinx-linux/device-tree/1.0-r0 directory to 
check for any *.dts files. This directory definitely does not contain any 
dts files.

I'm guessing I'm missing something small/simple here. Can anyone provide 
any guidance?
