git send-email never "attaches" the patch. It sends the patch inline,
so that reviewers can hit "reply" and review your patch directly by
replying to the e-mail.

I think your patch is good, but you should add a comment above the new
select line to indicate that it is a runtime dependency only (which
explains why you're changing the Config.in only, and not the .mk file).
Something like:

	# Runtime dependency only
	select BR2_PACKAGE...
