I don't think we want to apply patches conditionally. In fact, Jérémy's change
is much better, because it makes the patch upstreamable.
That said, as discussed on IRC, a much easier approach would be to overwrite
systemd's getty unit files with custom buildroot unit files in case
UTIL_LINUX_AGETTY is not selected. Then the patch could be dropped entirely.
