branch: https://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=refs/heads/master

The commit [1] "licensing info is only valid for v1.4" fixed the legal-info
issues when a custom ATF tarball or a version from git is used.
But we need to ignore licencing for a used defined official ATF version.

Althougt the ATF version are licensed under BSD-3-Clause, the license
file can be updated between version (for example between v1.4 and v2.0).

Ignore the licencing check if the user provide a custom official version.
