commit: https://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=89d4e1ccdbef234b227a2fa33666e0d89e508a82
branch: https://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=refs/heads/master

As recently discussed on the list:

Packages like mkpimage where the source code is included in the Buildroot
tree, currently doesn't use an extract step (which also skips the patch
step), so they cannot be patched by a patch in BR2_GLOBAL_PATCH_DIR (or the
pkgdir), which is a bit confusing.

As a fix, add a simple extract step that copies the source file to the build
directory, so the patch step gets run as well.
