Failure when bitbaking u-boot or fsl-image-full using EXTERNALSRC for 1703: no make rule for ls1043ardb_nand_config.


Please explain why and please provide a workaround to the no rule to making ls1043ardb_nand_config when using EXTERNALSRC?


make: *** No rule to make target `ls1043ardb_nand_config'.  Stop.


1. cp u-boot source to an external source location

2. run 'bitbake -c cleansstate u-boot' to clean tmp of any source and for u-boot

3. Add the following to EXTERNALSRC = "${TOPDIR}/..src/ls1043ardb-fsl-linux/u-boot-qoriq/2016.09+fslgit-r0/git" in

 4. Add INHERIT += "externalsrc" in the conf/local.conf. 

 5. run "bitbake fsl-image-full"


This assumes of course that all other steps to bitbake fsl-image-full have been completed correctly including running ./SOURCE_THIS
