We don't have an OS on the ARM, no  libraries, no BSP ... it's all a
big static block, so we can't have an installed "ARM library" for it.

So we could ask the user to have the sources somewhere, but the issue
is that  the ARM build is much more sensitive to libosmocore version
than the host one.

I don't really see the problem with having the libosmocore as subtree
for ARM build. For the host, it would sometime mix the intree and
installed versions during build and we also had to update it often,
but the subset used in the ARM is pretty small and doesn't require
much updates.



Cheers,

    Sylvain
