I managed to create a buildroot image with kernel 5.10rc4 for the pinecube.
How do you merge/blend Buildroot and Debian? 
Seems like you are under-utilizing Buildroot, and could just as easily build U-Boot and the kernel separately? 
BTW rc5 was released this week.  I've started a build for Pinecube as I'm writing this.

Because there is no driver in that kernel for the radio. 
The driver for the RTL8189ES is not in mainline.

That means that there is no image sensor (camera) device. 
If you've built the kernel with sunxi_defconfig, then there is no image sensor enabled in that configuration. 
You need to enable (using `make linux-menuconfig`): 

  Device Drivers -> Multimedia support -> Media ancillary drivers -> Camera sensor devices -> OmniVision OV5640 sensor support


I build buildroot & kernel & u-boot separately. Then simply copied u-boot files & zImage to output/images of the buildroot directory. Then rebuild the image. 

In buildroot there is also a option to use external kernel & u-boot. OVERRIDE_SRCDIR with See chapter 8.13.6 of the manual. But I didnt manage that. It seems that this, didnt use the right config files for the build.

There are any sources & firmware binaries for RTL8189ES available ?
