Yes i can look at this.

The only reason for this seems to be the use of the pi3-miniuart-bt
overlay.  Personally i never use this overlay, I set enable_uart=1 in
config.txt (the same as raspi-config does).  Is there a reason
buildroot favours the pi3-miniuart-bt overlay?

If we switched to using enable_uart=1 there would be no reason to
include the overlays and no reason for this separate rpi0w defconifg.

Thanks

Martin
