Hi Nikita,

Due autotools macros changes, which requires running autoreconf you need to add
into package/ltp-testsuite/ltp-testsuite.mk:
# Required by patch 0002-cpuset-Detect-missing-fts.h.patch

FYI: while my patch in LTP upstream fixes uClibc with disabled fts.h, it's not
enough for MUSL build, which is disabled. I've sent some experimental support to
buildroot ML last month [2] (backported some fixes + simply delete the rest of
problematic tests), but due either my problems with patchwork or outdated
patchwork instance on ozlabs it didn't arrive to buildroot patchwork.

And I don't know whether buildroot uses (or allows user) to disable
UCLIBC_HAS_FTS (whether this patch is actually useful).

NOTE: we're planning next release in about 2 weeks, I usually update package the
same day.
