bitbake: bb/ui: Use getSetVariable command for BB_CONSOLELOG
Metadata can define BB_CONSOLELOG as containing ${DATETIME} and this can get expanded to a different value each time the variable is read. In the case of BB_CONSOLELOG, this behaviour is not desireable. The values of DATE/TIME are locked down at build time but this is too late for the purposes of ensuring the system can figure out the real value of BB_CONSOLELOG. The best way to do this is to set the variable into the datastore, thereby preserving its value. [YOCTO #8411] (Bitbake rev: 021f2eb55ab5863b57ed1b3f19f1b329bc1ad477) Signed-off-by: Richard Purdie <>
