[Buildroot] [PATCH 1/1] luajit: point /usr/bin/lua to luajit if lua not selected

The luajit package is a provider of a lua interpreter, but does
not install a lua executable, as it can live side by side with lua.
This is fine for scripts that explicitly invoke luajit, but not
so good for scripts that just need a lua interpreter and call lua.
This mod creates a lua symlink so that the non-jit-specific scripts
will still work.
