[Buildroot] [RFC PATCH v3 1/2] makedevs: only warn when xattr support disabled

Previously makedevs failed when xattr configuration defined while
disabled BR2_ROOTFS_DEVICE_TABLE_SUPPORTS_EXTENDED_ATTRIBUTES.
Therefore check for this configuration would be required
in each use. Therefore only print warning with number of discharged lines.

No package is using this feature so far (it's used only in tests),
thus no need to change any package config.

Changes v2->v3:
* print warning only once at the end, print number of discharged lines
* put into single line (feel free to add new line)
