After looking into this more, i found in scripts/feeds that only the
installation of full targets is implemented (via symlinking the target
directory under target/linux.
So it seems this leaves me 2 options:

* adding a full target to my feed, which is odd, as this
target/subtarget (ramips/rt305x) is already in the OpenWrt tree, so i
have to come up with some 'fake' names for it
* Adding my target profile directly to the OpenWrt tree and manage these
patch with rebase when i want to upgrade OpenWrt

Is there any other option for adding customized target profile i might

Thanks, regards,
