First of all, thanks for your interest in CDBS. :-)

The provided patch is rather big, and it is not clear to me what exactly 
is the need for it.  It seems to add a wildcard for injecting anything 
(with a Linaro branded name).

Perhaps you could provide a concrete example need for options needing to 
be overridden in ways not currently possible.

Kind regards,

  - Jonas
