[Buildroot] [PATCH 0/5 v2] pkg-download: check hashes before the download (branch yem/download-hash)

Hello All!

This series introduces a way to check hashes prior to doing a download.

This is required for when upstream silently update their release tarballs
without renaming them, and the user is left with a stray locally cached
tarball that no longer match the hashes with have for that package.

In so doing, this series:
  - moves the check for a cached file into the wrapper;
  - moves the post-download check for hashes into the wrapper;
  - adds a pre-download check for hashes in the wrapper.

Doing the pre-download checks in the Makefile, like the post-download
checks were done, made the Makefile a bit harder to read. On the other
hand, we have a download wrapper shell script, so it is easier to do
trickey stuff in there (shell syntax) than in the Makefile (make syntax
can become unreadable pretty fast).

This has a side effect of cleaning up the pkg-download.mk Makefile, too,
but that was not the goal.

Changes v1 -> v2:
  - add options parsing to the wrapper  (Thomas)
  - typoes  (Thomas)
  - rename the wrapper to dl-wrapper so it looks better in the traces,
    and it is not confused with another wrapper
