I've applied your four patches. However, I'd like to see additional
patches to make the following improvements:

 * For the defconfigs, select a specific version of the kernel headers.
   Currently, your defconfigs are building a 3.10 kernel, but the
   kernel headers used in the toolchain are the latest ones (i.e 3.16
   currently), which is not good. This was already wrong in the
   existing defconfig, so I applied your patches nonetheless. But it
   should be fixed.

 * For the last patch adding a U-Boot patch, I believe we would prefer
   to use the global patch dir mechanism now, rather than the U-Boot
   specific option for patches.
