I was initially tempted to ACK Mike's patch, because I have the same
use case than Mike's (using git format-patch and then copying patches
to the Buildroot board specific directory), but as Daniel says, there
may be patches for other components in the same directory.

Maybe we should simply document this in the option help text?
