bitbake.conf: reason for assignment of deprecated variable

Markus Niebel


with the deprecation of SERIAL_CONSOLE the following was introduced in bitbake.conf:

3f0d665384e6d1b7aa2854a9cc4f13e0961bacb7 (bitbake.conf: set SERIAL_CONSOLES from
SERIAL_CONSOLE by default)

Since this is done after inclusion of local.conf and <machine>.conf any weak default
done for a System-on-Module / CPU will be overwritten. Is this just by forgetting to
remove these lines after the deprecation or is there still a reason to keep this as

Thank you
