  I guess you can download the patches as a tarball, right? Then you 
should just be able to use the tarball's URL in BR2_LINUX_KERNEL_PATCH 
and buildroot will extract them from the tarball and apply them all in 
directory order (or according to the series file, if present). Or does 
that not work for some reason?
