Hi, this patchset contains a couple of bugfixes for linux-yocto-3.4.
The first one is a fix for a bug being tracked by the following Yocto

  Bug 3167 - perf: annotate doesn't work

In a nutshell, the 'perf annotate' tool uses the 'expand' command in a
pipeline but 'expand' isn't normally available in Yocto userspace, and
we can't turn it on globally in Busybox or drag in coreutils just for
this one usage in perf.  So the first patch replaces it with the
equivalent 'sed' expression, which we can rely on existing in normal

The second patch is a forward port of a patch now in linus master to
fix a parallel build problem we see every so often with bison headers,
etc. e.g.:


Please pull into linux-yocto-3.4.
