It's a really minor patch, I don't think anyone would care really that
it was dropped. I will be sure to mention it in future commit messages
(or if I need to submit a revision for this).

The "runc" package in Buildroot compiles the userspace binary "runc"
which is called by "containerd" at runtime to start namespaced processes
(aka containers). "runc" means "run container."

The "runc" version referenced in containerd is the client for the runc
binary and the interfaces between. Matching the expected versions to
each other is necessary but security releases should be compatible.

Not sure on this one.
