linux-yocto: fix unapplied patch error message
When patches fail to apply, the status of all pending patches should be exported to the logs and to the user. Currently, a missing export of GUILT_BASE makes it look more like an internal error, than a 'normal' patch failure: | [ERROR] unable to complete push | pending patches are: | Patches directory doesn't exist, try guilt-init With this variable exported, we have this: | [INFO] validating against known patches (qemux86-standard-meta) | error: patch failed: Makefile:2 | error: Makefile: patch does not apply | To force apply this patch, use 'guilt push -f' | [ERROR] unable to complete push | pending patches are: | links/files/0002-makefile-patch.patch (From OE-Core rev: b2b2512cbc4196fa0f814be3677517dab30e5b52) Signed-off-by: Bruce Ashfield <> Signed-off-by: Richard Purdie <>
