    scripts/package: snap-pkg target · 5704d455
    Paolo Pisati authored
    Following in footsteps of other targets like 'deb-pkg, 'rpm-pkg' and 'tar-pkg',
    this patch adds a 'snap-pkg' target for the creation of a Linux kernel snap
    package using the kbuild infrastructure.
    
    A snap, in its general form, is a self contained, sandboxed, universal package
    and it is intended to work across multiple distributions and/or devices. A snap
    package is distributed as a single compressed squashfs filesystem.
    
    A kernel snap is a snap package carrying the Linux kernel, kernel modules,
    accessory files (DTBs, System.map, etc) and a manifesto file.  The purpose of a
    kernel snap is to carry the Linux kernel during the creation of a system image,
    eg. Ubuntu Core, and its subsequent upgrades.
