commit: https://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=d351bfb2bd39b6e15925a29ba7b81e630c5044dd
branch: https://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=refs/heads/master

When the rcw tools is built, it is probably to generate the RCW (Reset
Configuration Word) of the target. So it makes sense to do this directly
in the Buildroot infra and install it in the images directory, just like
we do for e.g. device tree blobs.

Add an option BR2_PACKAGE_HOST_RCW_CUSTOM_PATH that allows to specify
the source for the RCW. And while we're at it, make it possible to
specify multiple .rcw and .rcwi files, just like for device trees.
