  If I may throw in yet another alternative: depend on a version of 
uClibc. We can call our patched uClibc version 0.9.34. At least, this 
still applies when there's a finally a uClibc release: we would then need 
a mechanism to mark a package to depend on the new uClibc.

  On second thought, this is probably still difficult to maintain and 
equally difficult for user to use a buildroot-generated toolchain as an 
external toolchain.
