eglibc: enable support in the Buildroot toolchain backend
Using the newly introduced 'eglibc' package, this commit enables the option of building a toolchain using the eglibc C library in the Buildroot toolchain backend. In details, this commit: * Creates a choice to select uClibc or eglibc in the Buildroot toolchain backend (in toolchain/toolchain-buildroot/Config.in), and removes the fact that the Buildroot toolchain backend forcefully enables uClibc (toolchain/Config.in). * Creates a BUILDROOT_LIBC variables, which points to the package implementing the C library (i.e either 'uclibc' or 'eglibc'). * Modifies the gcc-final and gcc-intermediate makefiles to use the BUILDROOT_LIBC variable instead of hardcoding the use of uclibc. * Ensures that TLS support is always enabled when building eglibc. [Peter: fix commit text to refer to BUILDROOT_LIBC] Signed-off-by: Thomas Petazzoni <thomas.petazzoni@free-electrons.com> Signed-off-by: Peter Korsgaard <jacmet@sunsite.dk>
