tools: new tool to filter the output of make
Add brmake, a small script that redirects the build output log to a file, keeping just Buildroot's own messages, with the date+time added at the start of the line. We need to unbuffer the output of make so that, when the script is interrupted (SIGINT, ^C), there is no lingering output not yet digested by the logger loop. Signed-off-by: "Yann E.
