I tried to contact upstream about these patches but got no response.

So is it's ok to include them in buildroot or should I try to search
home for them ?

(currently they are on my server but I don't know how long I can keep
them there,
keeping enterprise ready Internet connection is not exactly cheap here)

Those adns patches can be grabbed from here:
