commit: https://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=c8c5660a818c9a367e46d4188f5f87b2dfe74a71
branch: https://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=refs/heads/master

This CVE does not affect the boost package, but is misclassified by our
CVS tracker. As per the advisory:

    Unspecified vulnerability in Boost before 6.x-1.03, a module for
    Drupal, allows remote attackers to create new webroot directories
    via unknown attack vectors.

Ignore the CVS, and expand a comment to explain it.
