Another nit that can be fixed while applying.

Just like in patch 3, this is not untrue.
But in the context of your series, perhaps it could be replaced by:
Some upcoming test cases can use one or more br2-external trees as
fixtures that provide packages used only in runtime tests.

Add support for br2-external into the BRTest class. Any test case can
then provide a list of paths for be used as br2-external trees during
the build of the image to be tested.
And who applies it could even tweak this to a better phrase.

I reviewed it and the contents are OK.
