The patch looks great. The only thing I think could be improved is 
setting BR2_LINUX26_VERSION. Need this so that BR2_PACKAGE_LINUX_KCONFIG 
gets set to something sensible (default is 
$(BR2_BOARD_PATH)/$(BR2_BOARD_NAME)-linux-$(BR2_LINUX26_VERSION).config).

Not sure what it would be best to set BR2_LINUX26_VERSION to, could just 
be "git" although if you specify a different branch I think that might 
be better

Will resubmit some patches once I'm done.
