If we are adding a new architecture, we will need to test it in our
autobuilders (http://autobuild.buildroot.org). Are you ready to spend
some time to look at the build failures, and fix the ones that are
related to the nds32 architecture ?

To make such testing happen, we will need to add a toolchain
configuration in support/config-fragments/autobuild/, and add it in

This toolchain configuration can directly point to the pre-built
toolchain you are using in PATCH 2/2.

Or, perhaps better, this pre-built toolchain can be added as a proper
package in toolchain/toolchain-external/, and then both the defconfig
and the autobuilder configuration can use it.

What do you think ?
