[Buildroot] [PATCH 03/11] package/rpi-firmware: add option to install vcdbg

vcdbg is a tool to help debug the communication with the GPU.
It comes as a binary-only, and in two flavours: one for the hard
floating point ABI, one for the software floating poitn ABI.

Unfortunately, we have no source code for that tool, only a binary
that was dynamically linked with glibc and libraries from rpi-userland.

So, just install that executable, and let's hope there is no symbol
issue at runtime.
