  What Thomas means is this:

It looks like you directly fetched these patches from some mailing list 
archive. Then it would be cleaner to let buildroot download them from 
there, rather than copying the patch in the buildroot tree.

  If for whatever reason it is difficult to retrieve from the 'net, then 
it would be nice if you could clean up the patches a little. Some of them 
even create a .orig file...

  No, we don't want to ask you to host those patches - then it's better 
to keep them in the buildroot tree.
