support/misc: Adding Vagrant file for provisioning
This patch adds a Vagrant file to buildroot. With this file you can provision a complete buildroot developing environment in minutes on all major platforms (Linux/Mac/Windows). [Peter: bump to 2GB RAM, hardcode Buildroot release, add unzip, drop website update and tweak manual text as suggested by Yann] Signed-off-by: Angelo Compagnucci <angelo.compagnucci@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Peter Korsgaard <peter@korsgaard.com>
