Spenser, All,

I know it was me suggesting this new package, but in the end, wouldn't
this be better handled with a post-build script?

A post-build script would also have all lattitude to decide what exact
.dtbo files to copy over, not just everything.

Not saying we should drop this package, but there really are a few
options here, and I don't really know what's better.

The comment is mis-leading: the firmware files are not copied from the
kernel source tree, but from staging. I would not state where they are
copied from, so I'd say something along those lines:

    Install BeagleBone capes firmwares.

    These firmwares are bundled in the TI fork on the Linux kernel for
    the BegaleBone, so you'll need to configure Buildroot to use such a
    kernel.

comment "beagle-capes requires a Linux kernel"

Otherwise, LGTM.
