package/skeleton: drop dependency on host-mkpasswd
Setting the root pasword is done in a target-finalize hook, so we do not need to enforce a dependency from the skeleton onto host-mkpasswd. Dropping that dependency will simplify making skeleton a virtual package (in up-coming changes). Instead, it is now selected as any other package. As such, it is guaranteed to be built before target-finalize. This however introduces a slight change in behaviour: previously, host-mkpasswd would only be built if we needed to hash the root password from its plain-text value. Now, host-mkpasswd is always built as soon as the root password is non-empty, even if already pre-hashed. Since host-mkpasswd is a really tiny weeny package bundled in Buildroot, with only two C files, built as a single unit with a single gcc call, the overhead is really minimal. Compared to the simplifications this will allow in the skeleton packages (plural: common, sysv, systemd, custom) to come, this overhead is acceptable. Yet another simplification, even if small, to ease providing multiple skeletons. Signed-off-by: "Yann E.
