tools/iio: build race condition




Hi,

I tried to compile the new v4.14 kernel and hit a race condition in the build system of tools/iio.
Here is my output (sorry for German strings, I wasn't able to reproduce with LANG=C):

In both cases tools/iio/iio_utils.o is compiled thrice. Depending on the exact timing you might get a truncated file.
I suspect the following commit: 18956cf2d78a ("iio: tools: move to tools buildsystem", 2017-07-29)
as iio_utils.o is referenced in all 3 tools.

Best regards,
Alexander
