  Take a look at LINUX_OVERRIDE_SRCDIR. It's not currently documented in 
the buildroot manual, but you can read the help text of the "location of 
a package override file" in the "Build options" menu.

A package override file is a short makefile that contains variable 
definitions of the form <pkg>_OVERRIDE_SRCDIR, which allows to tell 
Buildroot to use an existing directory as the source directory for a 
particular package. See the Buildroot documentation for more details on 
this feature.
