Paul Spooren 454021581f build: add buildinfo files for reproducibility
generate feeds.buildinfo and version.buildinfo in build dir after
containing the feed revisions (via ./scripts/feeds list -sf) as well as
the current revision of buildroot (via ./scripts/

With this information it should be possible to reproduce any build,
especially the release builds.

Usage would be to move feeds.buildinfo to feeds.conf and git checkout the
revision hash of version.buildinfo.

Content of feeds.buildinfo would look similar to this:

    src-git routing^bf475d6
    src-git telephony^470eb8e

Content of version.buildinfo would look similar to this:


Without the exact feed revision it is not possible to determine
installed package versions.

Also rename config.seed to config.buildinfo to follow the recommended
style of

This is the buildsystem for the OpenWrt Linux distribution.

To build your own firmware you need a Linux, BSD or MacOSX system (case
sensitive filesystem required). Cygwin is unsupported because of the lack
of a case sensitive file system.

You need gcc, binutils, bzip2, flex, python3.5+, perl, make, find, grep, diff,
unzip, gawk, getopt, subversion, libz-dev and libc headers installed.

1. Run "./scripts/feeds update -a" to obtain all the latest package definitions
defined in feeds.conf / feeds.conf.default

2. Run "./scripts/feeds install -a" to install symlinks for all obtained
packages into package/feeds/

3. Run "make menuconfig" to select your preferred configuration for the
toolchain, target system & firmware packages.

4. Run "make" to build your firmware. This will download all sources, build
the cross-compile toolchain and then cross-compile the Linux kernel & all
chosen applications for your target system.
