mtd: host variant needs host-util-linux, host-e2fsprogs
Since mtd was converted to the package infrastructure in commit de4cf4e9135e198d4c3beefc8ad63c03870eb78a ("mtd: convert to gentargets, add host package"), its host variant depended on host-e2fsprogs. At the time, only a host variant of the mtd package was available. When a target variant of mtd was introduced in commit b50e0fa113bf641a3764ae99b94bb7ba4e1e8f85 ("mtd: add option to build mkfs.ubifs for target"), it depended on util-linux. So today, the target variant continues to depend on util-linux, while the host variant depends on e2fsprogs. What mkfs.ubifs really needs is libuuid, which is provided by util-linux. It was in fact provided by the fact that host-e2fsprogs depends on host-util-linux. But really, host-e2fsprogs is not needed as a dependency, so use host-util-linux to be consistent with the target variant.
