[Buildroot] [git commit] cups: deprecate package due to security issues

commit: http://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=2d05afa42792193fa392c9f5417e8effc73d1e38
branch: http://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=refs/heads/master

Also mark packages that depend on cups as deprecated as well for easier
tracking.

It would probably be better to mark it as a legacy option so users get a
warning when migrating configuration files, but it would require a
direct removal for that.
