      build: allow openwrt.git packages to be replaced by feeds · 77e2b216

      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.
