The problem with the scripts directory, is that I find it mostly for
automated actions done by the make files. As that's where a lot of that
code is. I know we have things like checkpatch there, but honestly, I
would like to clean out scripts and make it only for the build process.
Or to move the build process out of scripts and make a new directory
I really have no idea what is in scripts. Half the stuff looks like it
helps the build process. I mean there's depmod.sh. Would we ever use
that for anything but the build?
There's also headers.sh which has as a comment:
# Run headers_$1 command for all suitable architectures
What the heck is that?
Perhaps we can discuss how to clean up these various scripts and such. I
mv scripts build
mv <non-build-scripts> tools/scripts
