This patch must be git-formatted, with a proper commit log of its own,
and if at all possible, in a shape that can be accepted by upstream,
with your sign-off.

It should also be in undified-diff format (which is implicit once you do
a git-formatted patch).

It looks like all you need here is to point to an laternate location for
the plugin. Maybe you could refactor the existing command to use a
configurable plugin instead. Also, using Buildroot specific variables
like HOST_DIR is certainly going to ease upstreaming it.

What about adding a new config option NATIVE_GRPC_CPP_PLUGIN and use
that if supplied on the command line. Maybe smething like:

    --plugin=protoc-gen-grpc=$<IF:CMAKE_CROSSCOMPILING,NATIVE_GRPC_CPP_PLUGIN,$<TARGET_FILE:grpc_cpp_plugin>>

And then use that as:

    GPRC_CONF_OPTS += -DNATIVE_GRPC_CPP_PLUGIN=$(HOST_DIR)/bin/grpc_cpp_plugin

Totally untested; you may also want to add a check that fails when
cross-compiling but no NATIVE_GRPC_CPP_PLUGIN was provided.

These two really needs to be thouroughly explained, and in a separate
patch. But see below...

Please, also include a hash for the license file.

Nit: no need for 'N.B.' A comment is by its very nature a nota-bene
already.

Then why do you need to tweak the corresponding defines in the .h ?

Note also that we do have c-ares packaged in Buildroot. Can its use be
made conditional instead of being entirely deactivated?

I really like to have all the disabled stuff come first (in aplhabetical
order), followed by the enabled stuff (in alphabetical order).

(I'm saying, because your .mk is almost perfectly organised like I like
them to be, so I still had to say something! ;-) )
