[Buildroot] Patchwork oldest patches cleanup #2 (deadline November 17)

For those who haven't seen the first patchwork cleanup session, here is
a quick recap: every session we'll be posting the list of the 10 oldest
patches, with the original patch contributors in copy. During two weeks,
we have the opportunity to discuss the patch, whether it is still
necessary or not, how it should be changed to be merged.

In particular, I'm interested in knowing if the original contributor is
still interested by the patch, or if someone else is interested in
adopting the patch and sending an updated version, or if the patch no
longer makes sense due to other changes made in Buildroot.

All patches that have not received any comment or attention before the
deadline will be removed from patchwork. This is aggressive, but we have
many 'dead' patches sitting in patchwork, and this cannot work.

For this second session, I set the deadline to November 17. Below are the
10 oldest patches (obtained with a slightly modified version of pwclient):
