xorg-release: ignore some packages
Following Gustavo's removal of two drivers for old hardware unlikely to be used in embedded contexts, the xorg-release script now reports those two packages as "to be added": they exist in, but not in Buildroot. So, we add a small list, XORG_EXCEPTIONS, in our xorg-release script, to list the packages we don't want to hear about. Of course, packages that exist in, and that are not part of this exception list, and are not packaged in Buildroot are still listed as "to be added".
