headers_install: fix __packed in exported kernel headers warns about using __attribute__((packed)) in kernel headers: "__packed is preferred over __attribute__((packed))". If one follows that advice it could cause problems in the exported header files, because the outside world doesn't know about this shortcut. For example busybox will fail to compile: CC miscutils/ubi_attach_detach.o In file included from miscutils/ubi_attach_detach.c:27:0: /usr/include/mtd/ubi-user.h:330:3: error: conflicting types for ‘__packed’ /usr/include/mtd/ubi-user.h:314:3: note: previous declaration of ‘__packed’ was here ... Fix the problem by substituting __packed with __attribute__((packed)) in the script. Cc: Artem Bityutskiy <> CC: Joe Perches <> Signed-off-by: Markus Trippelsdorf <> Signed-off-by: Michal Marek <>
