mtd-utils: add xattr PACKAGECONFIG and fix acl dependency
The unconditional removal of -DWITHOUT_XATTR accidentally introduced a compile-time dependency on "acl", because "sys/acl.h" gets included. This caused random compile failures. To fix this, we introduce a proper PACKAGECONFIG for the "xattr" support, with the distro's "xattr" feature determining the default. Setting the define must be done with custom code because PACKAGECONFIG can only influence configure parameters. The "acl" distro feature is not checked because although enabling "xattr" support now triggers a build of acl, nothing from it will not get included in the resulting target image. This seems more suitable than not enabling xattr support in mtd-utils when acl support in the distro is disabled. Signed-off-by: Patrick Ohly <> Signed-off-by: Richard Purdie <>
