Is it really necessary to add Busybox patches all the time, since they
got deprecated pretty quickly by newer releases ? I mean, at the time
of the Buildroot release, it of course make sense to have the latest
Busybox release with the latest fixes, but during the development
phase, is it really useful ?

Of course, if you already do it for other purposes, that's just fine.
I'm just wondering.
