[Buildroot] [PATCH v2] toolchain-external: allow vendor-controlled defaults

Some vendors (like ADI and the Blackfin processor) maintain & ship binary
toolchains that are up-to-date and have been fully tested.  They also use
a standard toolchain prefix.  Since these are (by and large) the packages
that users leverage when compiling Blackfin code, it doesn't make sense
to force them to manually input the toolchain name themselves.  So let ADI
configurations set up reasonable defaults to make people's lives easier.
