binutils, gdb: support unified binutils-gdb git repository
If Binutils and/or GDB are fetched from the unified binutils-gdb repository, then the tarball will contain both Binutils and GDB sources, unlike the "normal" tarballs that contain only the titular package. To keep packages separated in Buildroot we need to disable undesired components when configuring. Binutils and GDB migrated to a common Git repository in the October 2013 [1]. Previous Git repositories were incomplete copies of CVS repository which copied only the relevant files (no binutils files in GDB, and vice versa). In the new binutils-gdb repository there is no such separation and a result all files exist in directory after checkout. So if "configure" and "make" are used without explicit targets, all projects will be built: binutils, ld, gas, bfd, opcodes, gdb, etc. In case of Buildroot this would mean that selecting Binutils only, still will build both Binutils and GDB. And if GDB is selected as well, then both packages will be built two times, and Binutils from GDB directory will overwrite initial build of Binutils (or vice versa if Binutils will be built after the GDB). This is a serious problem, because binutils and GDB use separate branches in this common repository. In case of Buildroot this means that separate Git commits (or tags) should be used when downloading source from Git. This affects only Git repositories, because GNU release tarballs still contain only relevant packages. This change is backward compatible, because if "normal" tarball is used (without extra directories), than --disable-* configure options are just ignored by configure.
