+2016.08.1, Released September 21st, 2016
+
+ Fix potential entire root filesystem removal in the external
+ toolchain handling. This would trigger if (and only if) the
+ following conditions are met:
+
+ - The user has selected a "known toolchain profile", such as a
+ Linaro toolchain, a Sourcery CodeBench toolchain etc. People
+ using "custom toolchain profile" are not affected.
+
+ - The user has enabled BR2_TOOLCHAIN_EXTERNAL_PREINSTALLED=y
+ to indicate that the toolchain is already locally available
+ (as opposed to having Buildroot download and extract the
+ toolchain)
+
+ - The user has left BR2_TOOLCHAIN_EXTERNAL_PATH empty, because
+ his toolchain is directly available through the PATH
+ environment variable. When BR2_TOOLCHAIN_EXTERNAL_PATH is
+ non-empty, Buildroot will do something silly (remove the
+ toolchain contents), but that are limited to the toolchain
+ itself.
+
+ When such conditions are met, Buildroot will run "rm -rf /*"
+ due to TOOLCHAIN_EXTERNAL_INSTALL_DIR being empty.
+
