Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL 5.4 310/350] firmware_loader: Fix labels with comma for builtin firmware
From: Linus Walleij <>

[ Upstream commit 553671b7685972ca671da5f71cf6414b54376e13 ]

Some firmware images contain a comma, such as:
EXTRA_FIRMWARE "brcm/,gt-s7710.txt"
as Broadcom firmware simply tags the device tree compatible
string at the end of the firmware parameter file. And the
compatible string contains a comma.

This doesn't play well with gas:

drivers/base/firmware_loader/builtin/brcm/,gt-s7710.txt.gen.S: Assembler messages:
drivers/base/firmware_loader/builtin/brcm/,gt-s7710.txt.gen.S:4: Error: bad instruction `_fw_brcm_brcmfmac4334_sdio_samsung,gt_s7710_txt_bin:'
drivers/base/firmware_loader/builtin/brcm/,gt-s7710.txt.gen.S:9: Error: bad instruction `_fw_brcm_brcmfmac4334_sdio_samsung,gt_s7710_txt_name:'
drivers/base/firmware_loader/builtin/brcm/,gt-s7710.txt.gen.S:15: Error: can't resolve `.rodata' {.rodata section} - `_fw_brcm_brcmfmac4334_sdio_samsung' {*UND* section}
make[6]: *** [../scripts/ drivers/base/firmware_loader/builtin/brcm/,gt-s7710.txt.gen.o] Error 1

We need to get rid of the comma from the labels used by the
assembly stub generator.

Replacing a comma using GNU Make subst requires a helper
