I am conscious about this issue.
I got a lot of FLAK because I refused to add patches for the AVR32 toolchain
and instead introduced the possibility to download a prepatched toolset.
If this is not done, then an additional 8 MB (after decompression) would have been added.
Did not check, but I belive that a significant portion of those 2 MB,
are the Linux patches for AT91 and AVR32.
Once the target/linux/Makefile.in supports downloading these patches,
then they can go away.
I have also noticed that OpenSWAN adds a lot to the download size of Buildroot.
There is a large patch which is inside the buildroot source, and this patch
is available in several versions.
The patch is downloadable from internet, so there is no need to

Almost all the stuff are only empty directories, not adding significant size.
