Bug Description

Impact:

The snapcraft.yaml in bionic/master invokes the now obsolete 'firmware_install' target that was removed in 5620a0d1aacd554ebebcff373e31107bb1ef7769 ("firmware: delete in-kernel firmware"), and by invoking a non existing target, it breaks the build process.

On a generic amd64 environment, check out the Bionic/generic tree, cd into it and execute snapcraft:

linux $ snapcraft
...
make -j4 bzImage modules
...
  LD [M] virt/lib/irqbypass.ko
make: *** No rule to make target 'firmware_install'. Stop.
make: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs....
  INSTALL arch/x86/crypto/blowfish-x86_64.ko
...
make -j4 CONFIG_PREFIX=/home/flag/canonical/linux/parts/kernel/install modules_install INSTALL_MOD_PATH=/home/flag/canonical/linux/parts/kernel/install firmware_install INSTALL_FW_PATH=/home/flag/canonical/linux/parts/kernel/install/lib/firmware
Failed to run 'make -j4 CONFIG_PREFIX=/home/flag/canonical/linux/parts/kernel/install modules_install INSTALL_MOD_PATH=/home/flag/canonical/linux/parts/kernel/install firmware_install INSTALL_FW_PATH=/home/flag/canonical/linux/parts/kernel/install/lib/firmware' for 'kernel': Exited with code 2.
Verify that the part is using the correct parameters and try again.

Fix:

Since firmware files were removed from the Linux source code, and we rely on files provided by the linux-firmware package, skip invoking 'firmware_install' altogether and fix the build.

linux $ snapcraft

Regression risk:

None since the patch only modifies the snapcraft.yaml file.

This bug is missing log files that will aid in diagnosing the problem. While running an Ubuntu kernel (not a mainline or third-party kernel) please enter the following command in a terminal window:

apport-collect 1782166

and then change the status of the bug to 'Confirmed'.

If, due to the nature of the issue you have encountered, you are unable to run this command, please add a comment stating that fact and change the bug status to 'Confirmed'.

This change has been made by an automated script, maintained by the Ubuntu Kernel Team.

This bug is awaiting verification that the kernel in -proposed solves the problem. Please test the kernel and update this bug with the results. If the problem is solved, change the tag 'verification-needed-bionic' to 'verification-done-bionic'. If the problem still exists, change the tag 'verification-needed-bionic' to 'verification-failed-bionic'.

If verification is not done by 5 working days from today, this fix will be dropped from the source code, and this bug will be closed.

See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you!
