[Buildroot] [PATCH v4 0/3] Misc fs/common.mk improvements

Hello,

This small patch series is a new iteration of the few remaining
patches from Yann's series "[PATCH 0/6 v2] fs: fix and better handle
capabilities".

In Yann series, patches 1 to 3 have already been applied.

Patch 4 was not liked by Arnout, with some good explanation.

In this patch series, I propose:

 - An additional patch to rename FULL_DEVICE_TABLE to
   ROOTFS_FULL_DEVICES_TABLE to be consistent with
   ROOTFS_FULL_USERS_TABLE.

 - Yann's original PATCH 5/6, but reworked to apply without what was
   his PATCH 4/6.

 - A patch that reimplements PATCH 6/6 from Yann, but in a different
   way, due to the fact that his PATCH 4/6 was not taken, and
   therefore there is no permisson/device table split.

Changes since v3:

 - Reintegrate the idea of Yann's PATCH 6/6 (which was correct after
   all!), but in a way that works without splitting permission/device
   tables, since PATCH 4/6 from Yann was not accepted.

Thanks,

Thomas
