 s> * For patches stored in the package directory, if
 s>   package/<pkg>/<version>/ does exist, apply package/<pkg>/<version>/*.patch,
 s>   otherwise, apply package/<pkg>/*.patch
 s> * For patches stored in the global patches directory, if
 s>   $(GLOBAL_PATCH_DIR)/<pkg>/<version>/ does exist, apply
 s>   $(GLOBAL_PATCH_DIR)/<pkg>/<version>/*.patch, otherwise, apply
 s>   $(GLOBAL_PATCH_DIR)/<pkg>/*.patch

 s> This patch adds the new BR2_GLOBAL_PATCH_DIR configuration item, and reworks
 s> the generic package infrastructure to implement the new patch logic.

Committed with the minor doc nits pointed out by Thomas fixed, thanks!

Bye, Peter Korsgaard
