xzcat: treat as host prerequisite and build if needed
If xzcat is not present on the host system, buildroot bails out early asking the developer to install it (xzcat is now a DL_TOOLS_DEPENDENCY) Conversely, when BR2_TARGET_ROOTFS_CPIO_XZ is enabled, then host-xz is a build dependency, and no manual action is required from the developer. Because the second approach is nicer, also build host-xz when xzcat is not available, using the host-prerequisite and suitable-host-pkg mechanisms, already used for tar.
