[Buildroot] [PATCH] boot/uboot: fix build for sunxi targets

Since version 2017.01 U-Boot needs to run the binman tool on the host machine
for building the 'u-boot-sunxi-with-spl.bin' target. The binman tool is written
in Python 2 so we need to add the python host package when building this
target, otherwise the build fails:

```
  BINMAN  u-boot-sunxi-with-spl.bin
  File "./tools/binman/binman", line 49
    print result
               ^
SyntaxError: Missing parentheses in call to 'print'
make[1]: *** [Makefile:1090: u-boot-sunxi-with-spl.bin] Error 1
```
