[Buildroot] [PATCH 2 of 3] infra: remove incorrect default for FOO_DIR_PREFIX

Variable FOO_DIR_PREFIX is populated from pkgparentdir by the various
package infrastructures. However, if that would be empty (which in fact is
the case for the linux package), FOO_DIR_PREFIX would be set to
Not only does this make no sense (LINUX_DIR_PREFIX becomes /package/linux,
and for all other packages pkgparentdir is not-empty anyway), but it is also
using a non-existing variable TOP_SRCDIR.
This patch therefore removes the incorrect default.
