As for me, I'm not using building kernel in buildroot - I'm building it separately.
And with recent changes made by Ulf, we have only to regenerate our .config buildroot config
and to select Kernel -> "none". And I have buildroot build OK again.
The only thing that Ulf forget to warn people that if they have old buildroot .config
they must regenerate it and select kernel .config or kernel none , otherwise you will get that error
messages when doing cp.
