Yes, of course. My question is why do you have two patches? They touch
exactly the same line, simply do the change in two steps instead of
one. Am I missing something here ?

Yes, as I said, -L$(STAGING_DIR)/usr/lib is useless.

So I guess you'll rework accordingly? If needed, you can also have a
preparation patch that reworks this IRRLICHT_CPPFLAGS thing for the
NEON stuff, and then another patch that fixes the library linking issue.
