[Buildroot] [PATCH/next v2 1/1] package/icu: Add support to generate a subset of ICU data

Recent versions of ICU (64+) provide a tool for configuring ICU locale
data file with finer granularity [1].

Default generated size for libicudata.so is ~27M, which is quite large
for embedded systems and all of them may not even need all locale data.

This patch adds support for a custom data filter file in json format to
reduce the size of libicudata.so, e.g.

{
  "localeFilter": {
    "filterType": "language",
    "includelist": [
      "en",
      "de",
      "it"
    ]
  }
}

would only generate the locale data for english/german/italian.

This would reduce the size of libicudata.so to 12M.
