By default, the iputils build script might build binaries which are
useless for certain applications, like tftpd or ninfod. Those binaries
will add to the target filesystem size unless a post-build script removes
them manually, which is cumbersome and doesn't shorten build times.

In particular, in a certain aarch64 Buildroot project with musl selected
as a C library, this patch allowed to shrink the full iputils package from
219 KiB (if every option is selected) to 63 KiB (with only the ping
binary selected) - a 71.2% relative size decrease.

Moreover, upstream recently introduced a commit that disabled tftpd from
building by default, like rarpd. In the current state of things, this change
will introduce inconveniences for Buildroot users which prefer to use the
tftpd implementation provided by this package. With this patch, however, that
decision and similar future ones won't be a concern, because they will
have complete control of what binaries are built.

These changes add Kconfig options which let the user select what
binaries are built with ease.

Do we really want to handle this with depends on ? This is indeed what
is the closest to what the current package does, but when we have
sub-options, we generally use "select" to enable the appropriate
dependencies. In this case, it's not easy to know if there is a
preferred crypto provider though, so perhaps what you did is the best.

However, reviewing your commit, I realized we already have this
dependency on BR2_PACKAGE_LINUX_HEADERS, and this is completely bogus.
BR2_PACKAGE_LINUX_HEADERS is only valid when an internal toolchain is
used. When an external toolchain is used, BR2_PACKAGE_LINUX_HEADERS is
always disabled. So it shouldn't be used in packages. This is something
that should be fixed in iputils. In fact, kernel headers are always
available, as they are provided by the toolchain. So this dependency
doesn't make sense.

Could you investigate how USE_CRYPTO=kernel is working, i.e which
APIs/headers it requires ?

Besides this particular problem, the rest of the patch looks good to me.

Thomas
