branch: https://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=refs/heads/master

Update the kernel and U-Boot versions to the actual versions in use.
Update the description of supported hardware features.

Add a note that the stale SPI flash environment issue only affects the
vendor BSP.

 There are two build options: mainline support and vendor support.
 
 For the mainline BSP, we use:
