I'm not sure if it is already possible in buildroot to use a git URL
for the patches, but if so, you could point that one to the Angstrom
tree. At least, on condition that they are either numbered or have a
The kernel/tree/3.8 URL won't work of course because the patches are
not all in the same directory.
You can also check if one of the beaglebone repos (e.g. koenkooi) just
works for bbb.
