[Buildroot] [PATCH 0/3 v2] support: better check for a host with an UTF8 locale

Hello All!

When configured with support for locales, uClibc needs an UTF-8 locale
on the build machine.

This series makes it simpler to require such a locale, by introducing a
blind kconfig option to require an UTF-8 locale.

uClibc is made to select this option when it wants to build locales.

Then, when checking dependencies, we use that option rather than
reconstructign the conditions in the script. This means we no longer
check it for glibc or musl, but tests have shown that this is not
needed.

Changes v1 -> v2;
  - drop the tvheadend patch
  - rework changelogs accordingly

Regards,
Yann E. MORIN.
