--- Comment #3 from Thomas Petazzoni <thomas.petazzoni at free-electrons.com> ---
You have CONFIG_INITRAMFS_SOURCE defined in your linux_defconfig, but you have
not enabled initramfs support in Buildroot. So obviously this cannot work.

If you enable initramfs support in Buildroot, then Buildroot will make sure to
have a dummy rootfs.cpio when the kernel is first built, will make sure to set
CONFIG_INITRAMFS_SOURCE to the correct value, and will rebuild the kernel image
at the end of the build with the final rootfs.cpio.

Therefore, there is no bug per se: there is just a mis-use of the initramfs
