An effort was started to package the Bootlin external toolchains in
Buildroot itself, some time ago by engineers at Smile. We had some
off-list discussion about this, but I don't think it was ever posted to
the list. The idea back then was to have a script that generates all
the packages, but the design was to have one package for each
toolchain, so it really added a lot of packages.

But I think we should really support these toolchains in Buildroot
proper instead of having an external for them.
