[Buildroot] [PATCH v2 2/2] [RFC] package/pkg-waf.mk: mimic selection of host-waf

Since host-waf's Config.in.host is blind, it is not possible to select
it in the configuration menu. There are two possible solutions for this

- Add "select BR2_PACKAGE_HOST_WAF" to package/mpv/Config.in (currently
  only mpv requires host-waf). Also, document that BR2_PACKAGE_HOST_WAF
  must be selected when <PKG>_NEEDS_EXTERNAL_WAF is YES.

- Set BR2_PACKAGE_HOST_WAF to 'y' in the waf-package macro. This one is
  simpler because it does not require changing anything else.
