N is not a problem, per se, but if there are non supported Blueprint module
types used
it will not be possible to actually replicate Android.mk build rules to
Android.bp and the build will be missing some targets (for example is not
possible to install prebuilt files to $OUT)

I confirm that when trying drm_hwcomposer master build with oreo-x86
(Android O based)
I had to do manual procedures relying on Android.mk preliminary build +
Android.bp build [1] with some ugly workaround [2]


First build with Android.mk versions on drm_hwcomposer and libdrm
because /system/vendor/etc/hwdata/amdgpu.ids target required prebuild_etc
module type
then I used used Android.bp branches of drm_hwcomposer and libdrm

inspired by AOSP fa32e29 "Convert to Android.bp

Hi Eric,
in my case with both Android.mk and Android.bp the build is failing with
duplicated module name error
