[Buildroot] [PATCH 0/3] Minor toolchain improvements

Three minor toolchain patches, which I think are good for 2013.11,

 * Remove the 'experimental' marker from glibc/eglibc support in the
   internal toolchain backend. I don't think issues have been raised
   so far with the glibc/eglibc support, so it's time to encourage
   users to test them :-)

 * Ensure glibc or eglibc are not chosen with static only builds,
   since glibc and eglibc are known not to work for a pure static
   system. An user even had the not-so-nice experience of debugging
   why he couldn't log into his system: it was due to glibc/eglibc
   needing some shared library for authentication, and he had selected
   static library only.


Thomas Petazzoni (3):
  toolchain-buildroot: glibc and eglibc support is no longer
  toolchain-buildroot: make sure glibc isn't chosen when
  toolchain-external: make sure (e)glibc isn't chosen when
