    build: allow openwrt.git packages to be replaced by feeds · 77e2b216
    blogic authored
    Currently, replacing a package available in openwrt.git requires
    modifications in openwrt.git, or requires duplicating the package in a
    feed but with a different name, which causes all kind of problems
    related to dependencies (all packages selecting it would have to be
    modified accordingly to select the new package).
    With this change, if a package with the same name is present both in
    feeds/ and package/ folders, the one in feeds/ can override the one
    in package/, both in the menuconfig and during the build, by passing the
    "-f" option to "./scripts/feeds install"
    This mechanism is particularly useful for vendor tree, or in general for
    application which needs to replace one particular package which exists
    within openwrt.git by a custom/newer version.
