Phenomenon: the native Android 9.0 SDK, system / core / libushost is the module used by usb module to communicate with the driver. When debugging, you want to output log to logcat, turn on the debugging switch to recompile the code, and report the error of "undefined reference to '"

Cause of the problem:

The root cause of this problem is that the compiler cannot find the corresponding function implementation body at the time of linking, which is independent of the missing header file, that is, the liblog library where the function implementation body is located cannot be found

Solution: modify Android.bp and put the liblog shared library declaration outside the target. It's not clear why the target can't be linked
