[Buildroot] Patch for linux-headers

I wonder if it's allowed to add patch to add patch for linux-headers.
There would have to be more versions for the patch (due headers being built for
more versions). I'd like to use my upstreamed patch [1] which fixes
"redefinition of struct sysinfo" build failure on MUSL.
This so far required to patch affected packages or simply disable them
(depends on !BR2_TOOLCHAIN_USES_MUSL).

Actually, much simpler patch from Khem Raj could be used [2].

Kind regards,
