Sorry, I missed your mail, outlook is soooo awful to follow a mailing
list thread :(. I had to configure a mail client to see it.

Ok, I wasn't sure, thank you for the explanation. If there is still a
chance that the patch can be applied, I'll repost it without the tags.

Ok, thank you again.

And sadly, on my side, I'll have to keep this patch (and the
corresponding one for u-boot), because even if I dislike the idea of
maintaining buildroot patches locally, having kernel and u-boot
versions differ between what is built and what is set in the
configuration is, a more serious issue.

I still have some hope that this patch can be considered for inclusion
or that a clean alternative solution is proposed, though :).
