Description Bernhard Wiedemann 2018-04-03 19:24:43 UTC
/usr/bin/obuild and /usr/bin/obuild-simple
have variations in assembler output
that go away when /home/abuild/BUILD is on a 'disorderfs'
sorting filesystem.

Such effects have been observed in other packages when .o files were linked together in (random) filesystem order

I've fixed this by applying a patch that has also been accepted by the upstream. obuild now sort the result of readdir calls.
