[Buildroot] [PATCH 0/18 v4] gendoc infra: make it useable for other documents (branch yem/manual)

Hello All!

This series builds up on top of Samuel previous series, and further
enhances the GENDOC infrastructure to be useable to generate other
documents, and especially documents in br2-external.

The series is articulated as thus:

  - patches 1-4 from Samuel, virtually untouched by me, save for the
    check for xsltproc, see the changelog in patch 4;

  - then, patches 5-16 to remove hard-coded reference to 'manual'
    in either GENDOC or GENDOC_INNER, and to remove hard-coded paths to
    our manual, and to properly separate GENDOC generic rules from
    document-specific rules, and make GENDOC look more like the
    pkg-XXX infrastructures;

  - finally, patches 17-18 allow building document from br2-external.

There are a few shortcomings here and there, be sure to read the
post-commit notes.

Changes v3 -> v4:
  - only run the xsltproc check once, not for every types of outputs
  - add patches 5..18

Yann E. MORIN.
