[Buildroot] [PATCH 05/10] microcom: convert to gentargets

     I guess I should have explained this better. What I meant about
microcom being a flat archive, is that when you extract it, it does not
create a directory for itself. It just sticks its files, without a directory
being created, in the current directory. $(TAR_STRIP_COMPONENTS)=1 is
'Automatically detect tar --strip-path/components option', which, equates to
either --strip-path or --strip-components, depending on the version of tar.
Per the man page: --strip-components = 'strip NUMBER leading components from
file names on extraction', which means that for microcom, which doesn't have
a directory structure, it strips all the file names off, so no files
actually get extracted. This in turn, means that the patch routine does not
work. Hence, the reason for manually patching microcom. If you have a better
solution, I'd appreciate it, if you would show me, because I couldn't figure
one out. I hope this makes more sense.
