Yes, that's the Kconfig symbol.

That's one of the pending question, is it possible to support different
versions of Buildroot. When we start using the external, one benefit we had
in mind was we won't have to check/update the external at each new release
of Buildroot. It seems we were wrong, it could only save us to rebase
patches in comparison to the buildroot fork solution.
