This has been quite an active development cycle, with contributions
from approximately double the number of people than we usually do,
which is very nice - Thanks to the newcomers, as well as the "oldies".

Of noteworthy new features we have:

 - Proper splitup of host versus target binaries. The staging
   directory is now located in $(O)/host/usr/<tuple>/sysroot, and
   cross compiler + other host tools in $(O)/host/usr/bin.
   The cross pkg-config now also automatically returns correct values
   for cross compilation, without needing any environment variables to
   be set.

 - External toolchain and crosstool-ng backend improvements and
   out-of-the-box support for downloading/using CodeSourcery

 - Rework of how hardware boards are supported, and support for a
   number of qemu configs added.

 - Ccache support reworked. Now used for both host and target
   compilation, and cache is stored in ~/.buildroot-ccache.

 - Generic cmake infrastructure, similar to the existing
   GENTARGETS/AUTOTARGETS. Support for bzr downloads, next to the
   existing git/svn/ftp/http support.
