Just split up the patches and put the kernel header _FIXES_ in
toolchain/kernel-headers, just like all other architectures do.

The leftovers you can but under target/device/Atmel.

I would prefer to have the kernel headers stuff together for all
archs, the amount (and size of) patches is normally very limited.
