bitbake-contrib-mgh/ Fix incorrect bb files matched warningmgh/cooker-fix
In the case of a sublayer of an existing layer, where the sublayer and main layer share a path, the system may not match the paths properly resulting in: No bb files matched BBFILE_PATTERN_sublayer '^/path/main/sublayer' because it has already matched the main layer. Fix this issue by sorting the collection items based on the pattern, using longest to shortest. Obviously regex wildcards could still be an issue but these are typically not used, so this simply fix should work in the existing cases. Signed-off-by: Mark Hatle <>
