I think it might be enough for the first step, then to add custom s6
scripts it will be needed to add special custom package in custom exernal tree
which will install the needed s6 scripts. BTW, to manually re-install the
services by buildroot from command line it will be needed to call re-installation
of all packages to re-generate s6-init db again.
