Good point, but I never understood SOC_FAMILY. From an old email:
"SOC_FAMILY is defining a family of processors and the features that processor
has. Whereas MACHINE_CLASS is defining a type of device and its features which
can use different processors."
I think the first sentence is contradicting itself.
A "family of processors" vs. "features that processor had". This can
be fully orthogonal (worst case),
so the definition of the variable is crap. I wonder, has it proven
more useful than cumbersome?
If it truly has a clear function in OpenEmbedded that can apply to all
processors, can someone explain what the variable should be set to?
