Hello All!

Here are a few version bumps related to the Raspberry Pi:
  - rpi_defconfig: bump kernel (many fixes, improvements)
  - linux-firmware: bump (new firmware files for WiFi dongles)
  - rpi-firmware: bump (new codecs, mostly)
  - rpi-firmware: select firmware(s) to install

Also, promote genext2fs as a host-package, too, like we have
for other filesystem generators.


Notes only slightly related to this series:

For the Linux kernel for the RPi, there are a few branches available in
the raspbberypi repository:
  - rpi-3.6.y: that branch seems stable, and I just bump to the latest
               cset in that branch
  - rpi-3.8.y: I've expereienced many MMC errors using that branch
  - rpi-3.9.y: ditto, many MMC errors

However, with a RAM-based rootfs (eg. initramfs) or a network rootfs
(eg. NFS), it might be possible to reliably use those two last branches,
as long as the SDcard is not used.

Booting one of those two branches with the rpi-firmware currently packaged
in Buildroot fails, so it seems we first need to update rpi-firmware before
switching to rpi-3.{8,9}.y.

I'll report back on any improvement in this area.

Regards,
Yann E. MORIN
