Here's Atmel's reasoning for not including all the generated source /
autotools cruft in the patch:
"The reason why these changes aren't included with the patch is that it would
have increased its size by several megabytes, and the actual AVR32 changes
would have been lost in the noise."
Those are good points on their part, plus I don't want to have to create and
maintain my own patch. When Atmel comes out with their next gdb, I don't
want to have to create a new patch based on theirs to include in OE. I want
to download their patch and copy it into the OE tree.
This leaves running these extra steps only for the AVR32. What would I put
around these extra steps in do_configure() and do_stage() so that they are
only run when building for the AVR32.
