  Hi Jeroen,

  Thank you for your patch. However, I don't think we will accept it in 
buildroot. We could make thousands of configuration options that deal 
with all possible fine-grained tweaking. And especially in this 
particular case, the option is quite invasive (requires 5 additional 
lines in the .mk file) and it is possible to achieve the same result by 
adding a command-line option to dropbear, by including a custom 
S50dropbear to your fs-overlay.

  But of course, our friendly maintainer may be of a different opinion.

  The patch itself looks good BTW, except that indentation should be with 
a tab (tab + 2 spaces for the Config.in help text).
