If you change an existing option, please have a look on the
Config.in.legacy file. You should add the old option to that file, so
the user gets informed about the change.

Finally you should check if another package uses this option for its own
configuration and change this to the new option.
BR2_PACKAGE_TCL_SHLIB_ONLY is used by usb_modeswitch (not
usb_modeswitch_data anymore) to switch between the binary wrapper and
the tcl wrapper script.
