Assuming that you want to do this to compile your own firmware images, 
since adding login credentials in OpenWrt buildsystem would defeat the 
point of a private repo and none would merge that.

Imho the easiest way is to make a simple script that git clones from 
your repo(s) into a local folder on the build machine and uses right 
credentials, and then add that folder as local repository in feeds.conf.
