Correct, so this IMHO means we need to move to 5.9 for the LTS version
by the time we release Buildroot 2019.02, unless something changes - But
until then I would prefer to keep 5.6.
Sounds good. People that require this version in the future can simply
patch/port this package. At the very least, we should track the latest
5.9.x for BR 2018.02 LTS then (as it seems that release will include 5.6.x
and 5.9.x). I believe that is currently 5.9.4, with 5.9.5 coming in March.
Their patch version updates contain hundreds of bug fixes. Thanks.
