toolchain/crostool-NG: mark as deprecated
For the following reasons: - it used to be broken without anyone noticing for a long time, - it is still not fully integrated within the Buildroot set of options, - it has not gained much traction (not even I use it), - I've always argued that sustained development should use an external toolchain, and not rely on building one with Buildroot, - I did not submit any of the enhancements requested during the last developpers' day in Brussels, - I have neither the incentive nor the time to maintain and enhance it, it is time to deprecate the crosstool-NG backend for the 2013.05 release. Then, it will be entirely removed early in the 2013.08 cycle, to let some time for those that rely on it to voice their opinions. ;-) Signed-off-by: "Yann E.
