Hello All!

This series introduces a workaround for the limitations expressed in bug
#7172 [0], which explains that a variable containing a $ sign is incorrectly
expanded.

Since it is not trivial to actually fix #7172, this series implements a
workaround, by:
  - explaining the limitation in the menuconfig and the manual
  - adding patchelf as a host-package, so users can tweak ELF files
    after the build (e.g. in a post-build script)

Changes v1 -> v2:
  - fix typoes  (Thomas DS)


Regards,
Yann E. MORIN.
