Fix crash on exit when checking of libgpg-error lock object size. #14683

commented Oct 23, 2018


iOS/tvOS platform related. This PR patches a makefile of libgpg-error project to make the size of lib's lock object fits native mutex.

It may be done by choosing the "right" header file from lib's repository. Just before building of the project, it copies pre-created (by project maintainer) header file for aarch64-apple-darwin architecture, over the file for "our" build architecture arm-apple-darwin.

Motivation and Context

Every time when you exit Kodi on iOS/tvOS platform, the application crashes in posse-lock.c file on assertion
if (sizeof (gpgrt_lock_t) < sizeof (_gpgrt_lock_t)) { assert (!"sizeof lock obj"); abort (); }

How Has This Been Tested?

Run and exit from application under debugger. Before changes debugger stops on assert() call. After applying of PR you should not see this code anymore.
