Well, if you have not yet compiled the software, then you only need to
add a directory with a chsum file for the wanted kernel software. Not
sure if this approach for linux-libre-* works too.
But having compiled the software and you want to patch (update) only,
you also have to add some lines to the linux.in file. The structure is
also given within the linux.in file.
So, it is fairly easy to make a script file for that. Making a script
for all others pieces of software might become a bigger hurdle to take,
but still doable.
Maybe I use/adapt the tool from the 1.23 release. Still wondering why it
was not (anymore) included in the git (master) repository.
