Thanks for following up on this. So you know have several options:

 1/ Wait for upstream to make a new release, and once this is done, send a
patch to Buildroot to update to the latest version.

 2/ Send a patch right now to update Buildroot to the latest Git version of
nftables, and then later send a patch to do (1) once an upstream release is

 3/ Send a patch to Buildroot that adds the patch you pointed in
package/nftables/, after having backported it to the version of nftables
currently used in Buildroot.

If you can't wait, (2) is probably the easiest option.

Since this bug really isn't a bug, but more a feature request about an upstream
package rather than Buildroot itself, I'll mark it as "invalid". Please don't
take this as a "we don't care" message: we are definitely looking forward for
your patches on this topic, as being able to disable readline support is
definitely useful.
